Amazon offers multiple store brands. The products are available on Amazon.com, AmazonFresh, Prime Pantry, Prime Now, Amazon Go, and/or Whole Foods Market. Amazon houses its in-house brand offerings under the “Our Brands” label, which is separate from exclusive brands. Exclusive brand items are third party offerings sold exclusively through Amazon.[1] Some of Amazon's store brands require an Amazon Prime membership to purchase.
