Delivery Hero CEO and co-founder Niklas Östberg said: “As a leading player in the grocery segment, InstaShop has built a service customer love, and their expertise is a great addition to our quick commerce expansion.

“Together, we will continue to invest to drive the future of delivery by pushing the standards for speed and convenience.”

Additionally, Delivery Hero reported an increase in revenues by 93.7% on a year-on-year basis to €1.1bn ($1.3bn) in the first half of 2020, despite an initial negative impact from Covid-19.
