David Buttress said: “Pizza is the biggest-selling food category, followed by Chinese and Indian. But we can also see new cuisines coming through.
“The fastest-growing food type is Greek. Sometimes it can be healthier so perhaps we’re all being more healthy?”
The revelation comes as the stock market darling said sales jumped 54% to £107.8 million in the six months to the end of June, faster than expected, with pre-tax profits for the period up from £8.6 million to £14 million.
The results sent shares up 1.9% to 446.2p. The shares have doubled since listing last year.
Buttress added that Londoners were the fastest for embracing new technology when it came to ordering food online, with a huge take-up of Just Eat’s app.
Usage of the smartphone and tablet app was up across the UK, with 38% of all orders through it, while orders via mobile devices topped 60%.
He also revealed that the company aims to focus more on marketing and creating new technology, such as takeaway restaurants being able to tell customers when delivery drivers are on their way.
