The £200m merger between UK takeaway giant Just Eat and Hungryhouse has now been referred for an in-depth merger investigation.

Earlier this month, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said that it would refer the deal for an in-depth investigation because of concerns that the merger could lead to worse terms for restaurants using either company.

However, Just Eat was allowed the opportunity to offer ways of addressing these concerns.

During this time Just Eat has failed to address these concerns, therefore the merger will now be referred for a ‘phase 2’ investigation by an independent group of CMA panel members.
