A spokesman for Amazon said in a statement that the company had launched its catering service based on customer feedback. The new service aims to help local businesses, especially restaurants that are experiencing problems due to national lockdowns. Explain the reason for the lockdown is that the government has banned local restaurants from serving food in their place.
Amazon has launched this new service in Bangalore with four pin codes – 560048, 560037, 560066 and 560103. However, the company has not yet been informed that it will select restaurants and cloud kitchens on its own criteria.
A report released in February states that Amazon plans to launch its own online food delivery service in the country. Sources familiar with the news told Gadgets 3.0 that the service was delayed due to a lockdown, which the government imposed in March to limit coronavirus outbreaks.
