AmazonFresh is offering more than 400 Whole Foods lines

Amazon has listed an extensive selection of Whole Foods Market produce on its UK site, just days after its assault on the US market.

AmazonFresh subscribers can now choose from a total of 447 Whole Foods products across 12 different categories, including meat, cheese and world foods.

The only category missing is fresh fruit & veg, normally a core part of the organic grocer’s offering.

For now, it appears the Whole Foods range is limited to AmazonFresh - available to Prime members in selected parts of London and the South East who pay an additional £6.99 monthly subscription fee - and only a small selection of products are on Amazon’s main site.

In the US, Whole Foods products launched across, AmazonFresh, Prime Pantry and Prime Now on Monday.

The launch coincided with a round of price cuts that brought in reductions of up 43% on bestselling items such as bananas, salmon, eggs and ground beef.

Amazon also announced it would eventually offer Prime members in-store benefits and discounts.

In UK stores, price cuts have also come into force. A kilo of organic Fairtrade bananas went down by 33% to £1.20, while a jar of Mr Organic Basilico pasta sauce was reduced by 12% to £2.29.
