The discussions between Amazon India and Uber Eats are reportedly in their early stages where the two sides are possibly looking to explore a strategic alliance.

"People order almost daily from a Zomato or a Swiggy. These apps enjoy immense client stickability. Amazon believes this could be a great add-on to its membership plan," a source told the news daily.

As per the industry estimates, Swiggy last year had delivered around 8,00,000 orders a day while Zomato came a close second at 6,50,000. Whereas, Uber Eats lagged behind where it could manage between 1,50,000 and 2,00,000 orders per day.

Amazon.com Inc is planning a foray into the burgeoning online food delivery business in India this year, two sources aware of the development said, in a move that could raise competition in an increasingly crowded market.

Amazon is aiming to launch the new service delivering from restaurants ahead of India’s month-long festive season, which starts in September, one of the sources said.
