EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ — MamaMancini’s Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MMMB), a marketer and distributor of specialty pre-prepared all-natural foods, today announced that it has received a nationwide authorization from Amazon Fresh, an online grocery delivery service operated by Amazon.com, with shipments to consumers beginning in February.
Amazon Fresh is currently available in most major U.S. cities as well as 23 physical locations in key domestic markets. Amazon Fresh has a wide assortment of national brands and high-quality produce, meat and seafood, as well as a range of prepared foods. Items can be ordered online 24/7 through the Amazon Fresh website and are available for home delivery on the same day or the next day, depending on the time of the order and the availability of delivery slots.
Six (6) consumer-oriented products including beef meatballs and sauce, cheese-stuffed beef meatballs and sauce, plant-based meatballs and sauce, turkey meatballs and sauce, cocktail beef meatballs and sauce, and jumbo economy pack beef meatballs and sauce were ordered as part of the new authorization.
“Inclusion in Amazon Fresh’s invitation-only family of online and in-store grocery products – part of the largest e-commerce retailer in the world – is a highly promising milestone in MamaMancini’s direct-to-consumer business,” said Carl Wolf, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MamaMancini’s. “Online grocery sales are expected to represent 20% of the overall U.S. grocery retail market in the next five years, significantly accelerated by consumer trends resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new Mercatus/Incisiv study.
“In addition to its ongoing home delivery or in-store pick up offerings, Amazon Fresh started opening brick-and-mortar grocery stores in new markets in 2021 and is rapidly announcing new locations. While initial shipments will be modest, we see a significant long-term opportunity in further penetration as Amazon Fresh scales operations nationwide. I look forward to serving its large base of satisfied customers, helping to build sustainable value for all stakeholders,” concluded Wolf.
