Guwahati: Amazon to end food-delivery business in India

Amazon Inc. has decided to shut down a food-delivery business it was testing in India.

The decision was taken a day after it announced the winding down of its online learning platform for high-school students in the country.

The move has come amidst the company’s announcement to lay off around 10,000 people around the world. According to media reports, the company launched the business three years back before the pandemic.

According to Reuters, a spokesperson from the company said, “As part of our annual operating planning review process, we have made the decision to discontinue Amazon Food.”

We don’t take these decisions lightly. We are discontinuing these programs in a phased manner to take care of current customers and partners.”

Recently, the company said that it was shutting down the Amazon Academy platform in India that was launched early last year amid a boom in virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. An uncertain macroeconomic environment is making the e-commerce giant review its global workforce, as the company plans to lay off around 10,000 employees in corporate and technology roles, Reuters reported last week.
