What does Hive carry?
We’re an online marketplace for grocery, pantry, and household goods. We currently carry shelf-stable goods only. This inventory ships directly to customers through our New Jersey-based logistics partner. And yes, we’re shipping nationwide.


Choosing our brands with care
At Hive, we promise our shoppers a curated selection of best-in-class brands and products. To make sure we deliver on that promise, we developed our own vetting criteria: The Hive Five. This system helps us ensure that the brands we carry align with our goals and with our shoppers’ values.

We’re powered by brands like you.


Does your mission match ours? Email us at brands@hivebrands.com. Make sure you include a sell sheet (and any other introductory information you’ve got). If we think you’re 
a good fit, someone from our team will be in touch. Until then, we can’t wait to meet you.

Ingredient Integrity

Traceable, with sound practices:

Recyclable Packaging

Striving for zero waste:

We work to get as close to a zero-waste model as we can, with recycled-content 
and recyclable materials at the forefront, and a plan for doing better when 
this isn’t 100% achievable.
