Amazon might launch Food Delivery service in India, this year: Report
The e-commerce giant Amazon has ventured into India as ‘Amazon India’ back in 2012 as an online portal, which started with selling books, and mobile phones. The Seattle-based tech giant had now emerged into the biggest online shopping in the country. The company had later brought several other services like — Amazon Pantry, Prime services including Amazon Prime Video, and more to the country. And, now a recent report from Reuters is suggesting the company’s further plans for launching a food delivery service in India.
Food delivery is one of the eminent services in the country right now, where Swiggy and Zomato are usually dominating the market. While Uber also has Uber Eats, it hasn’t been embraced as the former two; likewise, Foodpanda by Ola also hasn’t been able to cope with the competition. Well, the Reuters’ report suggests Amazon is aiming to compete with these established startups in the country with the launch of its food delivery service even after the failed attempts form Uber and Ola. The sources familiar with the matter have confirmed the related to Reuters.
The report had further suggested Amazon India is supposedly working with the local partner Cataraman, a Bengaluru based company with which the tech giant had started hiring for its new service, which is yet to be made public. The anonymous source has also reported the Seattle-based company has plans to make the service public is Septemeber, during the festive season.
The report suggests this move from Amazon in India comes after Amazon closing its food delivery service back in the US, last month. Further, there isn’t any information regarding the new service launch from Amazon or Cataraman yet. If the sources are believed to be accurate, then we could expect further significant competition to Swiggy and Zomato as Amazon has already proven to be one of the best e-commerce delivery services with its wide variety of Prime options in the country.
