Just Eat’s acquisition of rival restaurant delivery company Hungryhouse has been cleared by the competition watchdog.
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has given the green light for the £200m deal, which is now expected to complete on 31 January 2018.
Andrew Griffith, interim chairman of Just Eat, said: ‘’The combination with Hungryhouse will enable us to bring benefits to even more independent restaurants, while improving the service and breadth of choice that we offer consumers.
“We are therefore pleased with the CMA’s decision and look forward to bringing Hungryhouse into the Just Eat family.”
Just Eat, which was founded in Denmark in 2001, announced it was acquiring Hungryhouse in December last year. The company also announced the acquisition of Canadian firm Skipthedishes for £66m, which features 2,900 restaurants, to expand its operations in the country.
