Albinder Dhindsa, co-founder of Grofers.com said that Amazon may reach out to FMCG companies to support sales but FMCG companies will not allow deep discounting since that will disrupt their pricing structure and they can’t sell at a loss. Also, Grofers will continue with its strategy of everyday low pricing.”
