The vegetables-fruit sector has a many-sides role in national economy in Hungary. Our natural resources and traditions of production render possible to produce high-quality vegetables and fruits by which products not only domestic consumer demands can be satisfied. Marketing of farm products and buying inputs for the production are among the biggest challenges for small-holder farmers. Farmers have often founded co-operatives or producer organizations to assist them in achieving the highest price from the market and paying the lowest price for the input. We would like to introduce the vegetable-fruit sector and mission of Producer Organization. The Producer Organizations play a great part in rural development and in Common Agricultural Policy of European Union. More and more farmers join one of POs, because they get EU subsidization through this organization only. We construct a situation report about usage and state of supply of information and communication technologies. Trough their business process we present what kind of ICT system usually help their and what opportunities are presented their. As study case we examined Producer Organizations. We introduce what kind of information and communication technologies they use.
