Even though many restaurants have reopened across the country, people are still buying millions of take-out orders.

But food delivery firm Deliveroo said the average order size is falling, down from £24.20 a year ago to £23.80.

According to it, there was a 59% rise in UK orders between September and July. This is partly due to the new partnership with Amazon.

The company had 35.7 million orders in Ireland and the UK, which was compared to 22.6 million for the same time in 2020.

Will Shu, chief executive and founder of The Company’s company, stated that “We anticipate further strong performances in the remaining part of the year.”

The international orders account for 74.6 millions, an increase of 64% from 45.4million.

According to the study, the average customer placed orders 3.3 times per month from July through September “despite widespread elimination of lockdown restrictions”.

A deal was struck with Amazon that gave Prime members free one-year access to Deliveroo Plus, its premium subscription service.

That resulted in a doubling of members of the delivery firm’s service, which offers free unlimited delivery on orders above £25.

The company also stated that it has benefited from Deliveroo Hop’s new fast grocery service which was launched in partnership by Morrisons in September.

However, it fell to 7.8 million monthly active users in the first quarter from 7.5 million the previous quarter.

In the UK and Ireland, the company’s gross transaction value fell over the three months, from £921m to £852m.

In its international markets, gross transactional value fell from £818m to £742m.

Deliveroo stated that this reflects “typical seasonality” in European markets.

Shu maintained his optimism. He stated, “We are excited about the opportunities ahead and our plans for delivering better value to consumers, helping our restaurant- and grocery partner to grow and providing further opportunities to riders.”

The firm released its first results in August since March, when it was listed on the stock exchange.

It revealed it had narrowed its pre-tax losses to £104.8m, as against £128.4m a year earlier.
