The group, to be called Just Eat Takeaway.com, will be a market leader in Britain, Germany, the Netherlands and Canada.
The companies said on Monday they had backed the deal as outlined on July 29, with Just Eat shareholders receiving 0.09744 new Takeaway.com shares for each of their shares.
The terms value Just Eat at around 4.7 billion pounds ($5.7 billion), based on Takeaway's price at Friday's market close.
Takeaway.com's shares have slipped around 8% since the deal was announced last week, trading at 76.70 euros on Monday morning.
"The board believes that this is a compelling offer for Just Eat shareholders which will create a global leader in a dynamic and rapidly growing sector," the British firm's chairman, Mike Evans, said.
"Together we will have the scale to address the huge opportunities in the delivery market, as ordering food moves to becoming an everyday convenience", he told reporters.
Scale is all-important in the fast-growing $100 billion market as global rivals such as Amazon-backed Deliveroo and Uber Eats scramble to offer consumers the biggest choice.
"There is unprecedented competition in this global market, with lots of new parties", Takeaway CEO Jitse Groen, who will lead the merged company, said.
"Bringing these two together means we can pool the profits from both, to allocate capital efficiently to 23 countries."
The companies said their merger was expected to lead to 20 million euros ($22.2 million) in cost savings after four years, with around half of that amount expected in the first year.
The deal is set to close by the end of 2019, after which Just Eat Takeaway.com shares will be listed in London, while Takeaway's current listing in Amsterdam will disappear after a year.
