AMERICAN FALLS – Lamb Weston is in the process of significantly expanding french fry production capacity at its American Falls facility, according to a story by Sean Ellis on Idaho Farm Bureau Federation’s website.

The $415 million-plus expansion project will increase capacity at the facility by about 40% and make it one of the largest frozen potato processing facilities in the world, according to Lamb Weston officials.

The expansion project is expected to result in about 12,000 additional acres of potatoes in Idaho, mainly in Power and Bingham counties, where most of the product for the facility is sourced, Ellis writes.
