LONDON: Deliveroo will allow restaurants to use their own riders for orders placed through its takeaway food app, in a move which will boost the number of available outlets by 50% as it intensifies a battle with rival Just Eat.

All orders currently placed on the platform in Britain are delivered by one of the firm's 15,000 riders, well-known for their distinctive black and teal jackets and delivery boxes emblazoned with its kangaroo logo.
