Amazon begins food delivery in India: Find details

As per the information on the app, the service is live in parts of Bellandur, Haralur, Marathalli, and
Whitefield of Bengaluru.

E-commerce giant Amazon has finally stepped into the food delivery setup and has plans to disrupt
the ecosystem. This delivery service will be called Amazon Food and it has already been rolled out in
some pin codes of Bengaluru. Users in Bengaluru can see the food delivery option under Amazon
Food.

“Free and contactless delivery, hygiene certifies restaurants,” Amazon highlighted on the app.
“We are launching Amazon Food in select Bangalore pin codes allowing customers to order from
handpicked local restaurants and cloud kitchens that pass our high hygiene certification bar. We are
adhering to the highest standards of safety to ensure our customers remain safe while having a
delightful experience,” an Amazon spokesperson told Economic Times.

As per the information on the app, the service is live in parts of Bellandur, Haralur, Marathalli, and
Whitefield of Bengaluru. As things stand right now, there is no clarity over what the strategy of the
company will be in the rest of the city.

Amazon Food was to be launched in February, but then COVID-19 locked the world and hence, the
plans were put on the backburner. It has to be seen if this service can compete with Swiggy and
Zomato at a time when the restaurant industry and e-commerce service is badly hit.

Amazon has already been delivering essential items through Amazon Pantry. Under this service,
essentials like groceries, food items, health and beauty items, beverages, etc are being delivered by
Amazon. The company has also been delivering food items and this includes ready-to-eat meals
through Amazon Prime Now as well as Amazon Fresh.

The other services which include Swiggy, Zomato, Big Basket and Grofers have already gone big on
delivering essential item delivery in the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic.
