SYDNEY (Reuters) - Meal delivery service DoorDash Inc said it will begin taking orders in the Australian city of Melbourne on Wednesday, its first foray outside North America, adding to the competition in the country’s home-delivery service market.

The biggest U.S. food delivery company will take on Uber Technologies Inc’s Uber Eats, Just Eats Plc’s Menulog and Britain’s Deliveroo just as the Australian food delivery market shows signs of slowing after years of rapid growth, according to official figures.

Doordash said in a statement it would sell deliveries from thousands of restaurants in the central business district and inner suburbs of Australia’s second-largest city with plans to expand to the rest of the world’s No. 14 economy by the end of 2020.
