For some eateries, the lockdown takeaway pivot was unexpectedly positive. Taiwanese restaurant Bao London had an advantage when it came to planning packaging: two of its founders, Shing Tat Chung and Erchen Chang, met studying at the Slade School of Art. “We always resisted delivery because we spend a lot of time crafting our bao – can you imagine how that will travel in packaging?” says Chung. “However, with the crisis, we knew we had to be creative so we took the plunge and created a sub-brand called Rice Error of food that could travel.” Bao’s biodegradable and beautifully illustrated takeaway boxes and make-at-home Bao kits have become such an asset, they’ve already launched a second sub-brand: Call Suzy.

It’s a much larger market.” If these women remain single and feel their jobs are under pressure, they might be tempted to use the eggs they have frozen with donor sperm and a surrogate for social reasons. “Companies like Apple and Google are much more amenable to helping women, paying for them to freeze their eggs. They are much more progressive, in that sense,” she tells me. That is one way of looking at it. It would be more progressive if these companies made it easier for women to take breaks from their careers to have babies earlier in life.
