Deliveroo's ad platform has helped the food delivery company grow revenue by 5% in the first half of its financial year.

This compares with a run-rate of $50.7 million in Q4 2022.

The report said: "The vast majority of this revenue currently comes from our sponsored positioning and search results product for restaurants and grocers. We continue to take a consumer-first approach, wanting to strike the right balance between helping merchants drive incremental demand, while always prioritising the consumer experience."

The brand said that it had ads from more than 50,000 merchants during the first six months of 2023, up 31.6% from 38,000 in the same period last year.
