The Wall Street Journal reports that Amazon plans to extend its Elements line to categories such as coffee, dog food and razors, among others.
Amazon.com is preparing to expand its Elements private-label to a wide variety of grocery items, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
The company, which sells baby wipes under the Elements brand, reportedly has sought trademark protection for more than two dozen categories under its Elements brand, including coffee, water, vitamins, dog food and razors. In January, Amazon pulled its Elements diapers after customers criticized the product.
The Journal reported that Amazon had approached private-label producer TreeHouse Foods of Oak Brook, Ill., to make some products.
Amazon declined comment.
