Just Eat delivers a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS TITLE™ to celebrate its people and mark a record-breaking year

London Docklands - Just Eat, a leading global marketplace for online food delivery, sets new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Largest Human Image of a Pizza.

  • On Friday 17 November, Just Eat employees set the official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Largest human image of a pizza
  • 810 Just Eat employees from around the world took part in the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title attempt in London’s docklands
  • Italian/Pizza is consistently one of the most popular menu items ordered on Just Eat globally.

On Friday 17 November, Just Eat, a leading global marketplace for online food delivery, delivered much more than just a tasty takeaway. Just Eat employees from around the world gathered in London’s docklands to set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the largest human image of a pizza. 810 employees attempted the title - smashing the 250 participant target.

Employees from the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, Canada, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, Brazil and Mexico took part in the attempt.

Pizza consistently tops the list as one of the most popular menu items ordered by Just Eat customers around the world. Just Eat partners with around 19,000 pizza-serving restaurants across the globe. In the UK, Margherita pizzas are the clear favourite, followed by Pepperoni, Chicken, Meat Feast and BBQ.

From humble beginnings in a Danish basement in 2001, Just Eat has grown from an ambitious crew of 15, to a passionate team of more than 2,500 on a mission to create the world's greatest food community - bringing together over 19.6 million customers with 78,700 restaurant partners in 12 markets and serving over 100 cuisine types - everything from pizza to sushi, burgers to burritos.

Lisa Hillier, Chief People Officer at Just Eat, said:

“Coming together to create the world’s Largest human image of a pizza was a great way to recognise what we can achieve as a global team. It’s not every day you see a Marketing Assistant from Mexico dressed as a mushroom standing next to a Territory Manager from Italy dressed as a basil leaf. We had a lot of fun and are thrilled that our global team has now been recognised as an official Guinness World Records record breaker.”

Anna Orford, Official Guinness World Records Adjudicator, said:

"Perched on top of a cherry picker, I had the best seat in the house as I witnessed 810 participants from Just Eat work together to become GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holders for the Largest human image of a pizza. The participants showed great co-ordination, as they braved the cold in their coloured hoodies to form the pizza ingredients and toppings. The mushrooms were my favourite!"
