Graham Corfield, UK managing director at Just Eat, said: “Brits embraced online food delivery in 2016, ordering a greater breadth of cuisines and on more occasions throughout the week.
“Technology developments have made food discovery more exciting. In 2016, we delivered the world’s first takeaway by a self-driving robot and Just Eat became the first five star rated iOS food delivery app.
“Thanks to collaborations with leaders in social media, augmented reality, gaming and virtual reality, consumers will see us continue to push boundaries in 2017.”
In the company’s reflections on 2016, Just Eat noted a rise in orders of desserts and breakfast dishes, which are the fastest growing categories in the UK for the company.
Italian remains the UK’s favourite cuisine, with Chinese and Indian also remaining popular.
