Manna has teamed up with Ben & Jerry's ice cream and Camile Thai for its new drone food delivery service.

The world's first aviation-grade drone delivery "as-a-service" platform will start its operations next month from University College Dublin, via food ordering and delivery platform Just Eat.

Manna said it will deliver to a large customer base with a sub three-minute delivery promise from vendor to customer.

"This technology will transform online food marketplaces, restaurants, dark kitchens, and communities globally," said Manna's CEO and founder Bobby Healy.

"The Irish Aviation Authority have been a tremendous help and guide over the past three years, working together we have ensured that our drones are extremely safe in all operating conditions," Mr Healy said.

"We look forward to working with regulators around the world as we bring this innovative technology to customers across the globe," he added.
