Amazon begins selling ready-to-cook meals.
Amazon has begun selling ready-to-cook meal packages for busy households in a bid to expand its groceries business. Amazon-branded meal kits come with raw ingredients needed to prepare such meals as chicken tikka masala and falafel patties. They are currently sold only in selected markets, including Amazon’s headquarters of Seattle. The development comes as Amazon is also buying the organic grocer Whole Foods for $13.7 billion.
