Thought food delivery by drone was a distant tech promise?

Think again.

Irish entrepreneur Bobby Healy says his first Manna Aero drone flights with burgers and chips will start in January.

The former Cartrawler CTO says he has clearance from Ireland’s regulators to do it and will start with an area servicing 30,000 people.

In the near future, he says, he hopes to scale to 50,000 delivery drones for the Irish and UK markets.

Is this really about to happen?

Adrian sat down with Bobby at the Web Summit in Lisbon to talk about how Manna Aero will work, the challenges facing it and Healy’s future ambition for the company.
