Global marketplace for online food delivery Just Eat has reported a revenue of £177.4m in the first quarter ending 31 March 2018, a 49% surge compared to the previous year.

The increase in revenue is due to the company’s “strong” order growth and a greater proportion of higher value delivery orders.

The food delivery company also reported a 32% increase in group orders of £51.6m, including a 24% increase in UK orders to £29.7m and a 46% increase in international orders to £21.9m.

“Just Eat acquired Hungryhouse on 31 January this year, which contributed to 1.4 million orders in this quarter.”

The growth in international orders was driven by a triple digit order growth in Canada and strong performances in Italy and Spain, partly offset by softness in Australia.
