Amazon slashes Whole Foods Market prices AGAIN

Yay for capitalism!

Soon after Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods was approved, the grocery store slashed its prices within a single day in both Canada and the United States. Everything from avocados to eggs to perogies, prices came down, but Amazon isn’t stopping there.

Whole Foods Market announced on Wednesday that it will be offering lower prices on a wide array of products: hot dogs, organic milk, chicken, organic rice and the list goes on.

Here is the official company announcement:

Whole Foods Market will also offer lower prices starting today on an additional selection of customer favorites across its stores, including: Value Pack Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (Organic and No Antibiotic), Responsibly Farmed Raw Peeled Shrimp, and holiday favorites such as 365 Everyday Value Canned Pumpkin, Organic Broccoli, 1lb Organic Salad Mixes, Organic Russet Potatoes, and Organic Sweet Potatoes.

All customers will also see reduced prices on products from some of the most well respected natural and organic brands, including Organic Rice from Lundberg Family Farms, Organic Beans from Eden Foods, Organic Chicken and Vegetable Broths from Pacific Foods, Organic Eggs and Milk from Organic Valley, and Toothpaste from Tom’s of Maine. Whole Foods Market is also offering lower everyday prices on some of the most popular products from well-known brands such as Chobani Yogurt, California Olive Ranch EVOO, Siggis Yogurt, Applegate Hot Dogs, and Fage Yogurt.

Whole Foods Market customers are increasingly interested in buying eggs from hens that have access to pasture and so Whole Foods Market is excited to be able to offer lower prices on the entire line of Pasture Raised Eggs from Vital Farms, including their Vital Farms, and Alfresco Brands.

John Mackey, Whole Foods Market co-founder and CEO, also said in a statement:

“These are the latest new lower prices in our ongoing integration and innovation with Amazon, and we’re just getting started. In the few months we’ve been working together, our partnership has proven to be a great fit. We’ll continue to work closely together to ensure we’re consistently surprising and delighting our customers while moving toward our goal of reaching more people with Whole Foods Market’s high-quality, natural, and organic food.”

No longer will Whole Foods have the moniker Whole Paycheck. It’s becoming more affordable for everyone.
