-Deliveroo, a leading online food delivery company in Europe and Asia, and Ad-Lib.io, the next-generation Creative Management Platform (CMP) for leading enterprise brands seeking to ensure advertising relevance at scale, announced today a continued partnership to support Deliveroo’s fast-growing reach with hyperlocal advertising execution that can be delivered at scale. By leveraging real-time data specific to the restaurants and demographics of each delivery zone, in combination with Ad-Lib.io’s Fix and Flex™ Creative Concept management, Deliveroo has shortened time-to-market from 2-3 days to just a matter of minutes while ensuring highly relevant advertising for each zone in every global market they serve.
According to McKinsey, mature food delivery markets, including the United Kingdom and Australia, have exponentially grown 4 to 7x since 2018. However, with this growth comes an expectation for increased geographic competition that will drive a greater need for advertising as services compete for local customers. With the Ad-Lib.io platform, Deliveroo has been able to augment paid social with display advertising to serve 30% more impressions in priority zones, and to achieve a CTR that is 2870% better than benchmarks thanks to dynamic templates.
“In the eight years since our founding, Deliveroo has grown to serve 7.8 million consumers in 800 locales across 11 global markets,” said Dean Weaving, Head of Display, Video and Paid Social for Deliveroo. “Our hyperlocal marketing strategy has been instrumental to our success, and Ad-Lib.io is a key partner in helping us scale our reach and creative effectiveness in record time. We look forward to continuing our work with them to bring the same relevant, on-target advertising to a multitude of highly differentiated localities.”
“Deliveroo has moved quickly to deliver incredible convenience to consumers, especially when local communities struggled to adapt their sources of food during the pandemic. Today, over 72% of the population of the United Kingdom is covered by their services,” said Adit Abyankhar, CEO of Ad-Lib.io. “We are honoured to have contributed to the speed and efficiency with which they have reached target localities with relevant advertising to grow their brand.”
Deliveroo (deliveroo.co.uk) is an award-winning delivery service founded in 2013 by William Shu and Greg Orlowski. Deliveroo works with over 140,000 best-loved restaurants and grocery partners, as well as 100,000 riders to provide the best food delivery experience in the world. Deliveroo is headquartered in London, with 2,500 employees in offices around the globe. Deliveroo operates in over 800 towns and cities across 11 markets, including Australia, Belgium, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and the United Kingdom.
Ad-Lib.io provides the leading next-generation Creative Management Platform for marketers at the world’s largest brands to enable them to scale their digital creative. Ad-Lib.io connects creative and media workflows using intelligent automation, making it easy and fast to produce and optimise relevant ad creative across all digital channels.

Integral Ad Science (Nasdaq: IAS), a global leader in digital media quality, today announced the expansion of its Context Control solution for advertisers and publishers globally, giving customers more control over the context of digital ad placements.
We first launched Context Control to help our customers transform their targeting strategies, and it's already prepared them to successfully navigate a cookieless future. Advertisers need these critical tools to customize their campaigns, while publishers need to drive greater monetization. With strong response from both buyers and sellers, we've continued to build on the success of Context Control, delivering even more value and technology that helps solve for the future growth of contextual targeting."
Lisa Utzschneider, CEO, IAS.
Brand risk continues to be a global challenge, according to the latest IAS Media Quality Report, and more programmatic buyers are activating Context Control within top DSPs to navigate these issues. Advertisers can now leverage more than 300 contextual segments from IAS on a pre-bid basis to avoid undesirable content or target towards content that is suitable for their campaigns. Major DSPs including Adelphic, Adform, Amobee, MediaMath, Xandr, Yahoo, and others have integrated Context Control, making these tools readily available for advertisers wherever they choose to buy. By activating Context Control, advertisers can see a significant decrease in block rate, a 36% decrease in cost per click, and a 19% decrease in cost per acquisition in a recent campaign.
Now available globally, IAS also offers Context Control Optimization for publishers. Working with IAS, publishers can now maximize their revenue potential by matching contextual settings with an advertiser's brand suitability needs. Publishers can now activate Context Control segments directly in their ad servers to avoid or target towards contextually relevant content. This builds on existing smart inventory classification and packaging capabilities available for publishers. With IAS's Context Control Optimization, publishers can generate a greater return on inventory, delivering a 20% lift in CPMs and a 120% lift in clickthrough rates in a recent activation.
"Context Control Optimization has proven to be an incredibly effective tool to classify our inventory and deliver better contextual targeting options for brands," said Leigh Horton, Head of Ad Operations at Insider.
