Deliveroo revealed a 110% increase in orders across the UK and Ireland compared with the first half of 2020. The food-delivery giant has also announced that it now offers takeaways more UK restaurants than any of its rival services. 

In recent months, Deliveroo has signed up 10,000 new sites and has increased its base by approximately 30% amid a committed push to up its restaurant recruitment. The company is also working to grow its network of on-demand grocery delivery providers as the Covid-19 pandemic has seen a substantial shift in consumer behaviour, with more people now wanting to purchase groceries online for home delivery. 

During the peak of the pandemic, demand for food delivery services boomed as restaurants, pubs, and cafes were forced to close their doors. It was feared that this demand would diminish as these businesses reopened, but so far, this has not been the case. In the second quarter of 2021, Deliveroo’s consumer base reached 7.8 million monthly consumers on average, compared to 3.7 million in the first quarter of 2020. 

Deliveroo’s CEO and founder Will Shu said that although consumer behaviour may moderate as the year continues, the company remains “excited about the opportunity ahead.”
