More about Atida
Atida is one of the largest online pharmacies in Europe, with a mission to redefine the true meaning of the concept ‘online pharmacy’. Atida is Hebrew for the ‘future’ and it is to this end that the company has developed a revolutionary concept. Linking data, e-commerce and the world of pharmacy is what Atida has in mind. A pan-European online pharmacy with an in-store experience that focuses on individual healthcare. The current company is a collection of eight acquired online pharmacies based in Germany and Spain and the current markets they serve are Germany, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy & the Netherlands. Atida has appr. 600 driven colleagues, of which around 35 work in the Amsterdam head office. They work together in hybrid teams with the local teams to boost growth and conquer new markets. Plans to optimize and centralize the business are in the making. London-based healthcare investor MARCOL is Atida’s majority shareholder, allowing the company the resources needed to conquer the European market. Both by autonomous growth as well as through more acquisitions, this online pharmacy will be the European frontrunner by 2025.
Their aim is to help people make better decisions about their health. From proactive to curative and whatever your goals, they offer an experience that is always about you. They firmly believe in a future where the journey towards good health becomes a trusted and truly personal experience. Next to Atida Plus (online pharmacy), they recently launched Atida Pure in the Netherlands & Germany: A new, personalised vitamin and supplement programme. Atida now plans to take the European market by storm.
Quantified self: the future of health
Long before COVID a trend toward ‘quantified self’ has been on the rise – the concept of individuals actively taking charge of their wellbeing, with data-driven tools, products, apps, and knowledge. This is not surprising, since the chances of facing lifestyle-based health problems (from diabetes to depression) have increased drastically in the past decades. 2020 obviously acted as a pressure cooker on this topic. On the one hand, the COVID-year put the subject of curative health front and center on everyone’s mind. On the other hand, the topic of prevention and wellbeing also became more important than ever.
Catching a cold has become something we would love to prevent – so how can we boost our immune systems? More broadly speaking, how can we take care of ourselves – mentally and physically – when our world has become the space between our four walls? In the near future the urgency of these questions will only increase further. In the long term, the demand for mental and physical self-care and optimized wellbeing continues to grow.
Atida: online, science-based, personalized
Atida provides an answer to this trend by sending its customers top quality supplement packages on a monthly basis. These packages are composed based on a quick and comprehensive questionnaire, about the individual’s physical status, habits, and wellbeing desires. Packages may focus on skin and hair, improved immunity, bone strength or healthy pregnancy – to name just a few examples. And of course, all of Atida’s supplements are high quality and backed by science.
‘Subscription-based consumer health is a fairly new game in Europe, but the market is entirely ready. And with the leadership team I have hired over the past year, we are well equipped to be the first player that tackles this market at scale.’ – Julie Szudarek, CEO at Atida
