Few companies have had a better pandemic than Deliveroo. Back in March 2020 the food delivery firm was close to going out of business – then came the COVID-19 lockdown and the boom in home deliveries. Capitalising on this, Deliveroo is now preparing to sell its shares on the London Stock Exchange. This should mean a bumper pay day for boss William Shu and the investors who have made big bets on his business. Meanwhile the couriers, on whose sweat Deliveroo depends, continue to be underpaid and exploited.
