More customers are enjoying Whole Foods Market's quality than ever
before, and Whole Foods Market 365 Every Day Value is now the #1 brand
on AmazonFresh and Prime Now

Since teaming up just one year ago, Amazon and Whole Foods Market have
introduced new offerings and additional discounts for customers, further
expanding access to the grocer's high quality natural and organic foods
both in-store and online through Amazon.com.

"It's never been a better time to be a customer at Whole Foods Market,"
said John Mackey, Co-Founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market. "Customers
have already saved hundreds of millions of dollars, so whether it's
better prices on your weekly shop, saving time through delivery from
Prime Now or taking advantage of incredible weekly deals for Prime
members, the overall customer experience is richer and more seamless
than it's ever been."

The companies lowered prices on hundreds of items for all customers,
with Prime members eligible to receive even deeper discounts on
additional items, and exclusive savings and deals in Whole Foods Market
stores. Prime members can also enjoy ultrafast grocery delivery in
dozens of cities and curbside pickup in select cities via Prime Now.

"Making Whole Foods Market's natural and organic foods more affordable
and accessible without compromising the industry-leading quality that
shoppers trust has been a top goal since the beginning," said Jeff
Wilke, CEO Worldwide Consumer, Amazon. "In just one year we've made
significant progress bringing the combined value of Whole Foods Market
and Amazon together."

Since the companies merged in August 2017, they have launched:

  • Exclusive Prime member savings: Prime members shopping Whole
    Foods Market stores nationwide receive an additional 10 percent off
    hundreds of sale items throughout the store, plus weekly deep
    discounts on select popular products.
