Amazon push.

ONLINE retail giant Amazon has pushed further into the British grocery market by joining forces with supermarket Morrisons.

The company has secured a supply contract with the Big Four grocer, which will see it offering "hundreds" of Morrisons products through its food delivery service Amazon Pantry and its subscriber service Amazon Prime Now. The deal will give Amazon customers access to Morrisons' "fresh and frozen" products, the supermarket said, and comes after supermarket Sainsbury's upped the ante in the highly-competitive grocery sector when it tabled a PS1.3 billion bid for Argosowner Home Retail Group in an attempt to become a "world-leading" retailer bigger than John Lewis and Amazon UK.
