Food deliveries have slowed at Just Eat Takeaway as customers return to restaurants.
Orders on the takeaway platform totaled 235.3 million in the three months to the end of September, down 7 percent from a year earlier.
The industry flourished during lockdowns, but companies like Just Eat have now been adapting to Brits dining out more.
The rising cost of living has also hit consumer spending this year, with the number of orders in the UK and Ireland falling by 3 per cent.
Slowdown: Orders on takeaway platform Just Eat totaled 235.3 million in the three months to the end of September, down 7% on the previous year.
The value of orders also fell by 7 percent to £6 billion.
But Just Eat raised its profit expectations to around £269m from a previous estimate of £239m.
Chief executive Jitse Groen said there was “particularly strong momentum” in its northern European subsidiaries and in the UK and Ireland.
He added: “Within the UK and Ireland we continue to invest significantly while increasing profitability.”
The shares fell 3 per cent, or 31 pence, to 1,008 pence, taking losses since the Covid peak in October 2020 to almost 90 per cent.
