Delivery Giant Uber Eats Wants to Buy Delivery Juggernaut Deliveroo

International taxi service Uber’s food delivery arm, Uber Eats, is in talks to purchase U.K. restaurant industry disruptor Deliveroo, according to a report by Bloomberg.

Citing sources close to the deal, Bloomberg says that the sale could be worth “several billion dollars”; Deliveroo was most recently valued at just over £2 billion.

Food delivery has become a priority for Uber, but Deliveroo is understood to be reluctant to lose its independence at a time when it has expanded to more than 200 cities globally and has significantly expanded its influence on not just the delivery market, but the restaurant industry more generally in the past 24 months.
