More than 20,000 products are currently available, including those from leading brands such as Barilla, Valfrutta, Knorr, Rio Mare, San Benedetto, Mulino Bianco, Plasmon, Mellin, Huggies, Chanteclair, Dash, Scottex and Cuki.

Amazon Prime customers can choose one of the available delivery options, including unlimited free shipping of products for daily use at home in 24 hours, available in over 6,000 municipalities, or the Evenings Shipping Service that allows to receive same day products, currently available in the Milan area only.

With the goal of upgrading the service, Amazon has invited independent Italian food producers and retailers to offer their products online to customers not only in Italy but also abroad. As of September, both Italian producers and food retailers will be able to use Amazon Marketplace and sell their products on Amazon as third party vendors.
