According to its own figures, Nonghyup provides 48% of rural food marketing in South Korea.[2] It works in most agricultural sectors, but specializes in beef, pork and poultry products.[3]

Nonghyup operates a number of big-box stores called "Nonghyup Hanaromart" that sell fresh produce, fruit, beef, pork, and other food products. Many products at Nonghyup Hanaromart were processed in Nonghyup factories and bear the Nonghyup brand. It owns the Agricultural Cooperative College, a private technical college located in Goyang City, Gyeonggi province.

Nonghyup is the sister organization to Suhyup (or Su-hyeop, the National Federation of Fisheries Cooperatives), a similar cooperative federation concerned with the fishing industry of South Korea.
