Sirka Background

Sirka is a consumer health startup founded in 2021 by Rifanditto A. and Vincentius Dito Krista Holanda

With their aim to become the health partner of Indonesians in their health journey, they had created a program that lasts for 3 to 6 months that includes:

  • Unlimited consultations with various accredited nutritionists 
  • Recipe planning catered to your needs 
  • Feedbacks from nutritionists

Community Q&A

Why it Matters

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a press release in 2021 states that obesity rates among Indonesian adults doubled over the past two decades. 

This is largely due to:

  • a shift from traditional diets towards processed products that are often higher in fat and sugar
  • along with exploitative marketing practices and packaging

“We estimate that there are more than 50 million obese adults in Indonesia, implying a huge, growing market. Sirka democratizes access to nutritionists and provides convenient access on mobile,” said Gavin Lee, General Partner, Wavemaker Partners.
