TOKYO -- Uber Technologies is planning to expand its grocery and non-food delivery business in Japan as the company looks to tighten its grip on a key Asian market.

By increasing the range of items offered through its Uber Eats app, the company hopes to become a one-stop shop for grocery, alcohol and more, and deliver them in 30 minutes or less.
