According to Amazon, the decision was made as part of the company’s annual operating planning review process.

Amazon Inc will discontinue a food-delivery service it was testing in India, the e-commerce giant announced on Friday, a day after discontinuing its online learning platform for high-school students in the country.

Amazon Food, a business it was testing in the southern Indian city of Bengaluru, would be discontinued, the company announced.

“We have decided to discontinue Amazon Food as part of our annual operating planning review process,” a company spokesperson told Reuters.

“These are not decisions we make lightly. We are discontinuing these programmes gradually in order to care for our current customers and partners.”

The Economic Times previously reported that the business would be phased out beginning December 29, citing a communication from the company to its restaurant partners.

Amazon announced on Thursday that it was shutting down the Amazon Academy platform in India, which it launched early last year amid a surge in virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Reuters, the e-commerce giant is reviewing its global workforce due to an uncertain macroeconomic environment, and the company plans to lay off around 10,000 employees in corporate and technology roles.
