Irish entrepreneur Bobby Healy's drone Manna Aero business has already been trailing fast food deliveries using its flying drones.

Tesco CEO Dave Lewis said the grocery deliveries pilot would take place in Ireland.

“They (Manna) have already proven the capability, the question is how do we take that capability and apply it to Tesco and that’s the detail that’s been worked on now before we get to the trial”, Tesco's Lewis said during a webcast Tesco hosted on “disruptive innovation”.
