Amazon has been running a proper grocery delivery service for quite some time now in the United States. Called AmazonFresh, it enables customers to get fresh produce delivered to them without having to even get off their couch. Even though Amazon UK has dipped its toes in the water, so to speak, when it comes to grocery delivery but it hasn’t launched the proper service that has been live in the United States. If a new report is to be believed then this is going to change in the very near future.
The Grocer reports that Amazon could launch the AmazonFresh grocery delivery service in the United Kingdom as soon as this month. Apparently the company has already started testing the service in London with a small number of customers. The company is said to have told suppliers to start deliveries in the next few weeks.
Bol, a supplier of chilled meals, has told the scribe that its salad bowls will be launching on AmazonFresh come May 18th, thus hinting at a potential launch of the service in London very soon.
AmazonFresh’s entry into the United Kingdom comes following the deal that Amazon signed with British supermarket Morrisons which will wholesale fresh, ambient and frozen products to Amazon.
The service is likely to go live in London first before being expanded to other parts of the United Kingdom.
