European food-ordering firm Just Eat today said it had received 46% more orders in the third quarter than a year earlier, as a surge in online orders due to coronavirus social distancing measures continued. 

Order growth accelerated from an increase of 32% in the first half of 2020, with orders up 47% in Germany and 43% in the UK. 

Restaurants in the Netherlands delivered a third more meals through the company's platform. 

"We have continued to generate strong adjusted EBITDA, while investing aggressively, and are well-positioned for autumn and winter, our traditional growth season," chief executive Jitse Groen said, without providing further financial details.
