Graham Corfield UK managing director of Just Eat said: “The kebab is still king on many UK high streets, but takeaway trends are being shaken up by adventurous eaters looking to sample the hottest new cuisine and healthier, more conscious foodies opting for leaner options.

"Vegan is the fastest growing cuisine ordered on Just Eat last year, with orders growing by 1500% per cent across the UK. We also saw a much bigger appetite for Cantonese cuisine and Nigerian food."
