A well-known firm in the Brigg area is seeking to expand.
Bennett Potatoes, which has about 60 employees, is applying for planning permission to expand its grading facilities and construct a further grading building at its base in The Old Station Yard, Scawby.
The site has been in use for potato storage and grading for more than 30 years.
This firm supplies many of the large supermarket groups with potatoes and it is important these are delivered to the customers in perfect condition.
It needs additional and improved grading facilities "for adequate quantities to be size-graded within the working day."
The proposed site is within Hibaldstow parish and the application is now being considered by North Lincolnshire Council.
