they consciously paid through the nose to get controlling stake in Whole Foods https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-06-16/amazon-to-acquire-whole-foods-in-13-7-billion-bet-on-groceries
and
the dynamics of that market (in this segment) are wayyyy different https://www.cnbc.com/2018/06/15/a-year-after-amazon-announced-whole-foods-deal-heres-where-we-stand.html than they are in India.
.
There, the 7$ water bottle selling caters to the niché clientele and rest can still be taken care of by subscribe and save.
.
Unlike them, ours is not that homogenous a market/ people.. we “need” the distinction of pantry…
… although i would be happy if psntry is devolved into thr subscribe and save catalogue here too

The program closed on Wednesday, an Amazon spokeswoman said, and thousands of products previously available under the Prime Pantry banner were folded into the company’s main retail site.

“As part of our commitment to delivering the best possible customer experience, we have decided to transfer Amazon Pantry selection to the main Amazon.com store so customers can get everyday household products faster, without an extra subscription or purchase requirement,” the spokeswoman said in an email.

In addition to shelf-stable food offered on Amazon’s main retail site, members of the $119-a-year Prime program in many cities can also order fresh food from Amazon Fresh and the company’s Whole Foods Market chain.
