CMA probes Amazon over plan to buy Deliveroo stake

Graham Watson

28th December 2019

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is still concerned about Amazon's proposed purchase of a stake in Deliveroo.

They've raised this before but Amazon have failed to make any representation to suggest that the deal will not have adverse consequences for consumers or restaurants and grocers.

The nub of the concern appears to be that Amazon will seek to invest in Deliveroo rather than develop their own rival, and thus choice will be lower and, similarly, there'll be less of an incentive fro incumbents to keep costs down.
