Sandi has developed his business to focus on the middle to upper market. He has been supplying agricultural goods for hotels, restaurants, and caterings.
He markets his business products through Mitra Tani Parahyangan company. The business was started when he was a 5th semester student. Utilizing e-commerce that was starting to grow back then, he started selling his father’s agricultural goods. He did that to increase the price of potatoes, sweet potatoes, cabbages, tomatoes, and chilli. Politeness, humility, and friendliness with employees are his characteristics.
Currently, Sandi is pursuing a master’s degree at IPB University. He argues that when agriculture is well-integrated with science, acceleration to success will be rapid.
