Is Amazon Pantry still winning on price vs. other online grocers?

Just after Amazon Pantry’s launch at the end of 2015, research was conducted to see how Pantry stacked up on price against the major UK supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons, Waitrose and Ocado) on its selection of approximately 4,000 grocery products.

We discovered that those competing grocers were priced between 16% and 29% higher on identical products.

And while Amazon does not typically disclose exact numbers for services like Pantry, Amazon UK boss Christopher North confirmed that it would be adding thousands more products to Pantry this year given its initial success.

Will Amazon Pantry and Fresh succeed in 2016?

Despite high market penetration relative to other countries, the UK still seems like it hasn't got its head around online groceries.

That's why 2016 will be so interesting, as Amazon continues to finesse its Pantry offering in the UK, which rolled out in November 2015.

I've rounded up some analysis of what might happen in 2016.
