Amazon to end its own food delivery ambitions

Follows its investment in Deliveroo
Amazon, Food delivery

American tech company Amazon has ended its ambitions in food delivery, with the closure of Amazon Restaurants.

Operating solely in the United States since 2015, it gave members of its Prime service the ability to get food delivered from restaurants – in the same vein as Deliveroo and Uber Eats. The service did operate in London for a while but that branch shut last year.


Its failure follows the news last month that Amazon was the largest investor in the latest funding round for Deliveroo, suggesting the company has not given up on food delivery entirely.
