Although still only available in a handful of area, Amazon has operated a grocery delivering service known as Amazon Fresh in the United States for a while, but now it’s about time the company expand the service internationally. According to Recode, Amazon is preparing to bring Amazon Fresh over to the United Kingdom very soon.
Amazon has been delivering groceries for a few years now now through its AmazonFresh service, but so far it’s been limited to a few markets to the US. According to a report by Recode, the service may soon be hitting the UK as well. Fresh is currently available in California, Seattle, New York, Philadelphia, and parts of New York, and provides groceries with same day or next day delivery. Amazon is entering a busier grocery delivery space in the UK, where customers are more used to having their food shipped to them. Whereas 5% of groceries are shipped and delivered in the UK, less than 1% of the are across the pond. There’s no exact word on when the UK branch of the service will launch, and an Amazon spokesperson declined to comment when asked by Recode, but at this point it appears to just be a matter of time.
