Helping our Restaurant Partners grow
The success of our Restaurant Partners is at the heart of our business. And with the right support, we know they can be even more successful.
Supporting our Restaurant Partners
We enable these businesses build an online presence, so they can reach new Customers. For thousands of Restaurant Partners this has meant more orders, more control and more value creation.
More recently, we have been exploring how we can use the scale of the Just Eat business to support our Restaurant Partners even more and drive positive social impact. Through our Restaurant Services team, our collective purchasing power has enabled us to identify offers which help enable our Restaurant Partners to thrive financially. Our range of offers includes exclusive food discounts, cheaper utilities, lower card payment fees, cheaper broadband, and discounted scooter insurance.
The British Takeaway Campaign
In 2017, Just Eat spearheaded the formation of the British Takeaway Campaign (“BTC”) - a new industry-wide body that unites leaders
representing the interests of those involved in the supply and
preparation of the nation’s favourite foods.
The BTC provides a single voice for the UK takeaway industry,
highlighting the sector’s economic, social and cultural value and
championing its growth. Economic research for the BTC shows how the
sector’s many smaller businesses and entrepreneurs collectively
contribute billions to growth and support hundreds of thousands of jobs.
Find out more about the BTC on the official BTC website.
Sustainable Restaurant Association partnership
In 2017, Just Eat partnered with the Sustainable Restaurant Association on the first ever “Good to Go” award for the takeaway sector
at the SRA’s Food Made Good 2017 awards and has funded membership of
the SRA for six of our most engaged Restaurant Partners. The SRA is now
consulting with them to improve their practices even further across the
pillars of responsible sourcing, environment and society and
subsequently share the lessons learned with our wider Restaurant Partner estate.
Better Fast Food Network
Just Eat has joined forces with Shift, a charity which uses research
and design techniques to create products and services which help address
social problems. Alongside six other organisations (Esmee Fairbairn
Foundation, Guys and St Thomas’ Charity, Mark Leonard Trust, Tower
Hamlets Council, Hackney Council and Birmingham City Council), Just Eat
and Shift have created the Better Fast Food Network to understand the
challenges faced by independent fast food outlets and support them to
gradually and sustainably improve the healthiness of the meals they
Shift will be undertaking work with and on-behalf of these
organisations over a period of two-years to develop financially
sustainable ways to improve the healthiness of the United Kingdom’s fast
food before setting up a stand-alone organisation that will oversee
this work into the future.
Driving ethical and sustainable sourcing through Restaurant Services
All the suppliers who provide goods that are sold to our Restaurant
Partners via our online Shop or via Restaurant Services must sign up to
the Just Eat Social and Ethical Compliance policy, which has been built
around the Ethical Trade Initiative base code. We ask manufacturing
partners to submit proof of ethical and quality compliance from third
party test houses or globally recognised industry bodies.
