Food delivery service Foodora will exit the Australian market at the end of the month to pursue other markets where it sees greater potential for market growth.

In a statement released on Thursday afternoon, Foodora said it would stop operating in Australia.

Jeroen Willems, country manager at Foodora Australia, said he wanted to express his gratitude to all its customers, contractors and employees for their dedication to Foodora Australia, "and for allowing us to be a part of their everyday".

"It has been a privilege to bring the food you love right to your door,” he said.

"The company will fully utilise its resources to ensure employees find suitable alternative roles, as well as support partners and contractors during this transition.

"The company, which has been a part of the Australian market since 2015, will start
winding down services and close by August 20th, 2018."
