LatAm List – Latin America’s food delivery leader, iFood, has been growing fast since raising what may have been the region’s largest round ever. Movile, which owns a majority share in iFood, reports that iFood made over 12.3 million orders in November, representing 14% growth compared to October.
During Black Friday, iFood was reaching peaks of up to 600K daily orders just within the Brazilian market. According to a press release, this number represents 119% growth compared to November 2017. They have also seen 84% year-on-year growth in partner restaurants, reaching 50,000 restaurants last month.
