Complaints that foul odours have been wafting from a new pet food factory in Somerset have resulted in an action plan being set up to tackle the stench.
People in Castle Cary contacted the Environment Agency over smells coming from Crown Pet Foods.
At a meeting this week, management from the firm said additional investment would provide a long-term solution to alleviate the problem.
They also pledged to carry out daily odour checks of the area.
Managing director Francois Demauge repeated his company's commitment to being a good neighbour.
"We at Crown Pet Foods take our environmental responsibilities very seriously," he said.
"We are treating this matter as high priority and will continue to work with the Environment Agency and the public to seek resolution of this problem."
The Environment Agency is due to hold a second meeting with Crown Pet Foods on Friday to assess its proposals for odour reduction and then oversee implementation of the company's action plan.
