UK households’ love for takeaways

Saturday night takeaways have been an ongoing tradition of UK households for years, particularly among families. Households spend an average of over five pounds a week on takeaway meals eaten at home, and younger generations tend to eat more than older generations. Takeaways are traditionally associated with delivery-focused outlets, although with the rise in food delivery intermediaries like Deliveroo, more and more restaurants are able to offer home delivery.

Food delivery market in the UK

The food delivery and takeaway sector is part of the restaurant and food service industry. Developments in food technology have created new channels for consumers, with online delivery and food delivery apps giving the sector a new lease on life, particularly in the UK. Traditional telephone orders still make up a large share of the delivery food market, however online channels are gradually taking over.
