“Following the merger of Just Eat and Takeaway.com nearly two years ago, we made significant investments to grow our leadership positions and the Company is now six times bigger in terms of orders,” Just Eat Takeaway.com chief executive Jitse Groen said.

“On the back of this success, we have markedly improved our profitability throughout the second half of 2021, and we will continue to improve adjusted EBITDA this year. Meanwhile, we expect our market positions to further strengthen driven by our superior network effects.”

Last year,  the company announced several on-demand grocery delivery partnerships, including Big 4 grocer Asda and symbol group retailer One Stop, in a bid to build on its extensive delivery network.

The company will continue to invest heavily, especially in its London network, while it expects to further improve profitability in 2022, it revealed.
