MamaMancini's Holdings Inc. shares rose 11% to $2 premarket after the distributor of pre-prepared foods said it got a nationwide authorization from Amazon Fresh, an online grocery delivery service operated by Amazon.com.
The company said shipments to consumers will begin in February.
Amazon Fresh is currently available in most major U.S. cities as well as 23 physical locations in key domestic markets, the company said.
"While initial shipments will be modest, we see a significant long-term opportunity in further penetration as Amazon Fresh scales operations nationwide," said MamaMancini's Chief Executive Carl Wolf.
