The deal sends shockwaves across both the online and brick-and-mortar industries.
Last week, at the ATMOsphere America 2017 conference in San Diego, Calif., Accelerate America magazine presented Whole Foods with a best-in-sector award in the food retail category for its myriad natural refrigerant pilots, including 10 stores with transcritical Carbon dioxide systems, one with ammonia/CO2 cascade and one with propane/CO2 cascade, as well as more than 50 stores with at least one propane self-contained case (shecco produces ATMOsphere America and Accelerate America as well as this website).
In the short term, the way forward for Amazon+Whole Foods is clear. That prodding irked Mackey, who has referred to Whole Foods as his "baby" and to Jana as "greedy bastards".
The bottom line is that today, Amazon's systems are the dominant commercial platform powering huge swaths of the modern online economy. A 2017 McKinsey report estimated that more than half of the tasks involved in retail jobs could be automated, and that these solutions were less expensive than employing workers.
The company's exclusivity program has been so successful that Whole Foods is in the process of rolling out a new retail-store concept around them, called 365 by Whole Foods.

"Amazon clearly wants to be in grocery, clearly believes a physical presence gives them an advantage", said Michael Pachter, an analyst at Wedbush Securities Inc. And then they see this and they think "if online is going to kill offline, what am I doing in the sector? So theoretically you could get 5-minute delivery".
None other than John Mackey, Whole Foods chief executive officer, once predicted that Amazon's quest for grocery deliveries would be "Amazon's Waterloo". As Amazon invests in new benefits and makes it easier for everyone to afford, there's a long runway for growth, especially internationally. The Seattle-based company had about $21.5 billion of cash and equivalents at the end of March, the data show. Jeff After Amazon announced on Friday it would buy Whole Foods, Bezos's net worth jumped $2.5 billion, according to Forbes, making him the world's second-richest person with a net worth of more than $84 billion.
Additionally, SpartanNash previous year detailed to brokerage analysts that it had struck a distribution partnership with Amazon. Earlier this year, Oppenheimer valued Whole Foods in a buyout scenario in the mid $40-range.
Most concern after the acquisition announcement was for Whole Foods' cashiers. "There could be some money left on the table", he said in a note to clients.
Jana had called for Whole Foods to overhaul its operations and brought in retail and food experts to help foster a turnaround. Store closing announcements are piling up at a record pace. Amazon's move aims at the heart of the Bentonville, Arkansas-based retail giant's business - groceries, which account for 56 percent of Wal-Mart's $486 billion in revenue for the year ending January 31. He said the firm was only interested in profiting from a forced sale of Whole Foods, rather than pursuing the company's mission of "conscious capitalism". According to Madeline Hurley, IBISWorld senior analyst, this acquisition means Amazon will be able to reach more consumers than ever before.
