Careem, a Middle East competitor to Uber Technologies, said on Sunday it had acquired RoundMenu and would start trialling food delivery services through the restaurant listing and reservation online platform this month.

The Dubai-based ride hailing firm acquired the website and app for an undisclosed sum.

"Careem will begin testing a delivery capability for RoundMenu customers on a small scale later this month," it said in a statement.

RoundMenu has a presence in 18 cities across nine Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Egypt, according to its website.
