Kitwave, the corner shop crisps, frozen food and fizzy drinks distributor, is pressing ahead with plans for a new 67,300sq ft Wakefield warehouse.
The commitment was inherited from HB Clark, which is took over in 2016.
Developer Yorkcourt (2008) has applied for permission from Wakefield council for a site at the former Newmarket Silksone Colliery.
The site was previously earmarked for a new sports stadium.
Planning officials are recommending approval of the scheme.
