Jeff Bezos-owned Amazon may foray into food delivery business in India, thus setting up a fresh competition and some headaches for established players in the category like Zomato and Swiggy. Amazon has reportedly hired some staff in India and is looking at launching its operations in time for Diwali. Reportedly, Amazon’s local partner for the food venture will be Catmamaran, a company founded by Indian IT leader NR Narayana Murthy. There also have been rumours that Amazon may acquire Uber Eats. However, there has been no confirmation about this.
