Whole Foods' shareholders back Amazon takeover plan

Last week, the news broke that Whole Foods' shareholders had backed an Amazon takeover plan. The internet retail giant's bid was placed at £10.8bn and, providing it has competition watchdog approval, will see Whole Foods' physical presence come under Amazon's global e-commerce influence.

Daniel Domberger argues that this significant landmark has much wider implications, conforming to the global trend of delivery companies aligning themselves with grocery stores to maximise profits. Going forward, he suggests, we may find more key players in the gig economy arena aiming to gain physical store presence.
