Birmingham (UK), 23 July 2019 – Supermeal, a leading takeaway app provider offering instant cashback on every order, has been shortlisted for Disruptor of the Year 2019.

Having launched in 2015; the takeaway delivery app provides a reliable platform for food discovery in the UK and South Asia markets. The platform helps consumers save money, encouraging them to come back for more special offers and new deals that feature amazing discounts. Supermeal gives foodies a chance to enjoy delicacies from hundreds of restaurants hassle-free. Its fast growth has made it a close adversary of industry influencers like UberEATS, Just Eat, and Deliveroo.

The success of Supermeal is greatly attributed to the founder; CEO Waqar Shah, an ex-British Telecom software engineer and tech entrepreneur. Having graduated with a degree in Computer Science from the University of Birmingham, he developed a progressive software company that underpins Supermeal as a tech partner.

The technological aspect of Supermeal has been widely recognised by the prominent GBEA award organisers, earning the company a spot as a finalist in the regional awards.

Waqar Shah, CEO of Supermeal Ltd, said: “I’m incredibly proud to be shortlisted for the Disruptor of the Year Award. Disruption is about ambition, power of action as well as harnessing bleeding-edge technology. I’d like to take this opportunity to share a huge thanks to the amazing Supermeal team, I couldn’t be prouder of how far we have come, and it’s thanks to the commitment and loyalty of every single employee.”

Over the years, Supermeal has garnered recognition from across the board for its remarkable impact on the consumer-producer market, awarded winners of the West Midlands Tech Award for Digital Start-up of the Year 2018, ranked in the Top 10 Apps of Birmingham and semi-finalists for the illustrious KPMG Awards, to name but a few.

The technologically advanced models these businesses are based on fit naturally into the respective industries and this adaptation places them at the top of rivals.
