We’ve all had to drag heavy bags home from the local supermarket at some point, the plastic handles cutting off circulation to your fingers and the excessive weight giving you the unenviable posture of The Simpsons’ Mr Burns.

Fortunately for your poor back, we’re introducing a solution. With the launch of our 27th category, ‘Pantry Food and Drinks’, Aussies now have access to thousands of pantry items from over 400 local and international grocery brands without setting foot outside their door. Whether you’re craving a pack of Arnott’s Classic Assorted, the jar of peanut butter in the cupboard is down to scrapings, or you’re all out of Uncle Tobys Oats for breakfast, you’ll now be able to restock your pantry with the click of a button.

Heavy items like bottled drinks and tinned goods will be sent directly to your door – good riddance to the spine-crushing walk from register to car – alongside staples like tea, coffee and confectionary. The new range also meets Australians’ growing enthusiasm for healthfoods, featuring respected brands like Pacific Organics, Blue Dinosaur Paleo Bars, Genoa Foods, and Ovvio tea, while also supporting local healthfood entrepreneurs such as Honest to Goodness and Zen Green Tea.

These tasty items join the more than 80 million products already available on Amazon.com.au, and the new category builds on last month’s arrival of Pet Supplies, Travel Store, Jewellery and Automotive categories.

We also launched our membership program, Prime, in June of this year, bringing members access to the widest selection of Prime benefits at launch for any country ever. These include free delivery on millions of items, access to exclusive and award-winning Prime Original series and other popular movies and TV shows with Prime Video, access to over 1,000 e-books with Prime Reading, benefits for gamers with Twitch Prime, access to discounted priority delivery, and more.
