Amazon launches food delivery in parts of Bangalore

On Thursday Amazon India said it is launching food delivery operations called “Amazon Food” in select parts of Bengalore (the capital of the Indian state of Karnataka).

This comes on the heels of  the announcement that Indian food delivery company Zomato will be cutting 13% of its staff as a result of the pandemic.

“Customers have been telling us for some time that they would like to order prepared meals on Amazon in addition to shopping for all other essentials. This is particularly relevant in present times as they stay home safe. We also recognise that local businesses need all the help they can get,” an Amazon India spokesperson said.

The spokesperson added that Amazon Food will be launched in select Bengaluru 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.”

The service will initially be available in four pin codes in Bengaluru – Mahadevapura, Marathalli, Whitefield and Bellandur covering over 100 restaurants. These include outlets like Box8, Chai point, Chaayos, Faasos, Mad Over Donuts as well as restaurants from hotel chains like Radisson and Marriott (Shao, Melange and M Cafe among others).

The orders can be placed through Amazon app but the option will currently be visible to customers in the live pin codes.

Amazon has been testing food delivery service in India among its employees for over six months.
