Amazon Signs UK deal with Mexican food company

Amazon has made its latest stride into selling groceries to online shoppers by signing a deal with a Mexican food company to sell its goods on its British website. 
 
The agreement is the most recent push into food retailing by Amazon, which has quietly built up a selection of thousands of dried goods on its UK website. The online retailer has been expanding its Amazon Fresh service, which delivers fresh groceries to customers' doors, across the US in the past year, and is believed to be considering bringing it across the Atlantic. 
 
On Tuesday, mexgrocer.co.uk announced it would be selling an initial 100 products, such as margarita mix and chilli sauce, on Amazon.co.uk. The Luton-based company says it will be able to dispatch orders within 24 hours of them being made. 
 
Amazon started selling dried groceries such as biscuits and canned food in the UK in 2010 and now boasts tens of thousands of products. 
 
Moving into the UK grocery sector would come as a serious challenge to Britain's major supermarkets if Amazon carries over its practice of winning market share by charging rock-bottom prices for books and CDs.
