Agriculture is very personal to me, as is making an impact on society. These factors meshed to produce SariSuki.

SariSuki was founded in 2020 as a response to the COVID pandemic and part of the founders' mission of empowering communities around the country. During the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Brian Cu's wife, Kate, started selling fruits and vegetables to her community. By consolidating the orders in her area, Kate managed to buy fresh produce in bulk and offer her products at discounted prices. She wasn't alone in doing this. All over the country, community sellers started providing for the needs of their neighborhoods. Inspired by this amazing collective behavior, the team at SariSuki found that this was an actual business model in countries like China and Indonesia - Community Group Buying.
