Online retail giant Amazon has launched a new service called Amazon Pantry in the UK that enables Amazon Prime members to order a range of grocery essentials for home delivery.

The service will offer more than 4,000 everyday items including food and drink, household supplies, baby and childcare, 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.

Available exclusively to Amazon Prime members, the service allows customers to 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 if an order exceeds the size of the current box, a new Pantry box begins.

Items available through Amazon Pantry include food from the likes of Heinz, Kellogg’s, Walkers, Uncle Ben’s and Tilda and drink from Robinsons, Nescafé, Kronenbourg and Glenfiddich. There are also household products from Ariel, Persil, Andrex and Fairy, baby and child items from Huggies, Pampers and Johnson’s Baby, pet products from Pedigree, Purina and Whiskas, and health and beauty items from 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

“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.”

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 some 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.
