Amazon’s Prime Pantry service lets you ship 45 pounds of groceries for a $6 fee

Amazon’s Prime Pantry service lets you ship 45 pounds of groceries for a $6 fee: “Amazon’s dead-set on killing off the grocery store, with a same-day delivery service and even a Dash gadget for restocking items around the house. Now the retailer’s going one step further, taking on Costco and Walmart with a new program called Prime Pantry.”

*This could be the tip of the iceberg on how online retailing will change the game in the grocery business. 

I’ve been thinking about how packaging would change if it was not on store shelves needing to scream at customers as they wheel their cart around the store. Packaging could be designed to fit in and be combined in cubes that fit in standard box sizes. What items are bought together? Maybe these items would have packages that enable more efficient shipping.

Keep an eye out for packaging news from the food and CPG (Consumer Packaged Goods) industries.
