Online takeaway ordering company Just Eat posted a 54pc revenue jump in the first half of 2015, taking in £107.8m.

The company, which now has 11 million active users, took 41.9 million orders in the period, a 52pc rise on the same period last year.

Just Eat chief executive David Buttress said the company had “seen the success of [its] ongoing strategy to reinvest profits above target to drive additional growth.”

“I am particularly pleased to see the results of our mobile strategy which has already created a much improved experience for our app and mobile users. We have acquired market-leading operations in three new rapidly growing markets of scale: Mexico, Australia and New Zealand,” he added.

In Ireland the company has over 1700 takeaway restaurants online and had over 750,000 active users in 2014.

Last year it received over 2 million orders here – a 58pc jump on 2013.
