AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Online food delivery company Just Eat Takeaway.com said on Wednesday it has struck a deal with One Stop, a British convenience store chain owned by Tesco, to handle orders and deliveries on its platform.
The deal is the second in a week for Amsterdam-based Takeaway, Europe's largest meals delivery firm, after it announced a similar partnership with Britain's Asda on Dec. 14.
The moves come after Just Eat faced criticism from investors that it had been slow to respond to new competitors entering the grocery delivery sector.
Deliveroo has partnerships with Waitrose, Morrisons and Sainsbury's, while Uber has worked with Shell, Asda and Carrefour in France.
The past year has also seen a flurry of new entrants to European food delivery, including fast grocery delivery firms such as Germany's Gorillas and Turkey's Getir, which bought Britain's Weezy in November.
Gorillas announced a trial partnership with Tesco in October. One Stop has 500 stores around Britain.
Meanwhile, U.S. companies are coming to Europe, as DoorDash bought Finland-based deliverer Wolt for $8 billion in November and privately held U.S. firm GoPuff has bought both Dija & Fancy.
