Amazon announces shutting down of food delivery business in India
Amazon will shut down its food-delivery business in India on December 29 this year, the e-commerce giant said on Friday.
Amazon told its restaurant partners it has decided to discontinue its food delivery service, which it had started in May 2020 in Karnataka's Bengaluru.
“This decision means that you will no longer get orders from customers via Amazon Food after this date. You will continue to receive orders till then and we expect you to continue fulfilling those orders,” Amazon told its restaurant partners.
On the other hand, on Thursday, Amazon said that it is going to shut down its edtech service called Amazon Academy‘s operations in India starting August 2023, and will refund the full fee to those who enrolled in the current academic batch.
The Amazon Academy platform in India was launched early last year amid a boom in virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
