Steve Rusling, director at Lake Marketing, said: "The last food festival was a great success. We want to bring the festival back to the area to showcase what North East Lincolnshire food producers can offer.
"Grimsby was hailed as Europe's food town, so let's get that status back."
He hopes some of the big food producers in town will get behind the Festival at the Meridian Park venue, which has a capacity of up to 12,000 visitors.
The team has been wanting to bring back the festival for sometime and has had a date confirmed at Meridian Park for September 21 and 22.
Lucie added: "Even though the date is quite far off, we have a lot of planning to do to make sure this event is something North East Lincolnshire can be proud of.
"Lincolnshire is renowned as the nation's larder. We have everything here. I know times are hard, but people tend to spend a little more on food in these times.
"If you were out shopping you might not buy the dress that catches your eye, but you will have something to eat as a treat."
The young entrepreneur said the growth in the number of chefs going on TV and promoting their skills around the country had inspired many people to take an interest in foods and that London is now awash with street-food outlets.
The theme for The Lincolnshire Food Festival 2013 is Around The World And Home Again, and aims to showcase local produce as well as bringing in different foods and cultures from around the world.
There will be cookery demonstrations by celebrity chefs on both days of the festival, along with music influences from around the world.
The event also aims to show people that cooking good, healthy food need not be difficult or expensive and that there are alternatives to supermarket ready meals.
The Lincolnshire Food Festival 2013 will also see the introduction of a "papa-kata" tents for VIPs and there will also be a kiddies' corner, where the team will teach children how cooking can be easy, fun and healthy.
Event officer Steph Hale said: "Lincolnshire has not showcased all that it produces. The festival will show people that it is all here right on their doorstep."
