If you look into recent announcements made by the insiders of the company it does seem that integration between the two corporations is occurring at a pace that is slower than expected. Jeff Yastine believes that the corporate culture is significantly different between the two companies and lead to further difficulties into the future. Amazon typically has a focus on low-cost products whereas Whole Foods has focused on employee happiness and overall customer satisfaction.

Currently, there has only been around a 1% decries in the total cost of goods after the acquisition by Amazon of the grocery store chain. However, since the original announcement of the merger Amazon has experienced around an 18% increase in their stock value. Many of the promises that Amazon has made have yet to be seen implemented.
