Prime members nationwide can  shop for more than 4,000 food and drink, cleaning and laundry, baby and child,  pet, and health and beauty products

Amazon Pantry products arrive  in a dedicated 20kg capacity box with One-Day Delivery for £2.99

London, 13th  November, 2015 — Amazon.co.uk today launches Amazon Pantry (www.amazon.co.uk/pantry), a new nationwide service exclusive to Amazon  Prime members, offering more than 4,000 low-priced everyday essentials in  everyday sizes, including food and drink, household supplies, baby and child  care, pet, and health and beauty products. Customers can fill up as much or as  little of an Amazon Pantry box as they wish for One-Day Delivery with a £2.99  fee for the first box and 99p for each additional box in  the same order.

Amazon Pantry launches as the  newest benefit available exclusively to Amazon Prime members, with millions of  members in the UK already enjoying unlimited One-Day delivery on millions of  products, more than 15,000 movies and TV shows as well as more than a million  songs to stream or download, unlimited photo storage and more than a million  Kindle books to borrow – all as part of their membership and at no extra cost.

Prime members can track the  space available in their Pantry box based on the size and weight of the  selected items. Pantry boxes can carry up to 20kg and as items are added,  Amazon Pantry shows how much space is left in the box. Customers  can choose to buy as much or as little as they wish and if an order exceeds the size of the current box, a  new Pantry box will begin.

More than 4,000 items are  currently available through Amazon Pantry with thousands more to be added in  the coming weeks.
  Leading brands available  through Amazon Pantry include:
  ·          Food – Heinz, Kellogg’s,  Walkers, Uncle Ben’s and Tilda
  ·          Drink – Robinsons, Nescafé,  Kronenbourg and Glenfiddich
  ·          Household – Ariel, Persil,  Andrex and Fairy
  ·          Baby & Child – Huggies,  Pampers and Johnson’s Baby
  ·          Pet – Pedigree, Purina and  Whiskas
  ·          Health & Beauty – Dove,  Pantene, Gillette and Colgate

“Amazon Pantry has been  designed to take the heavy lifting out of replenishing the often bulky basics  and store cupboard essentials that people need every day,” said Helene  Parthenay, Amazon Pantry Manager at Amazon.co.uk. “We’re always looking to  innovate on behalf of our customers and find ways to save them time and money.  We think they will love the broad selection, quick delivery and low prices of  Amazon Pantry.”

With Amazon Pantry, Amazon  also offers curated lists to help customers find what they need for occasions  and activities such as parties, a new baby, a weekend away, a night in and the  morning routine. Customers can also fill and send Amazon Pantry boxes to family  and friends.

Amazon has offered food and  drink items for many years, having launched its Grocery  Store in 2010. More recently,  Amazon announced that it would be adding a small range of chilled and frozen  items to its Prime Now service which offers one-hour delivery to customers  in eligible postcodes in London and Birmingham. Prime Now will roll out to  further UK cities in the coming months.
