One World. One Team.
Indiana Packers Corporation Delphi, Indiana
Indiana Packers Corporation (IPC) is a fully integrated retail, foodservice and private label producer of fresh and processed meats company. Based in Delphi, Indiana, we are a short 15 minute drive away from Lafayette, Indiana, home of Purdue University. Since the start of operations in 1991, we have experienced rapid growth from a single pork processing company into a multi-plant diversified producer of fresh and processed meats, with locations throughout America's Heartland. We now have additional processing facilities in Frankfort, Indiana, Holland, Michigan, and Owensboro, Kentucky. With 3,100+ team members and more than $1.5B in annual sales, we're a big company with a small company culture.
In October 2018, our acquisition of Specialty Foods Group (SFG) expanded the market presence of Indiana Packers Corporation with the addition of SFG's Kentucky Legend and Artisan Crafted Series national brands as well as Fischer's, Field, Kentuckian Gold, Scott Pete, and Mickelberry's. Our fresh pork is the main component for creating the quality product for these unique brands of meat. Prior to this strategic acquisition, IPC has been known regionally for our Indiana Kitchen branded fresh pork products, including our award-winning bacon. Obviously, we are proud of our success in the industry and accomplishments we have achieved, but we are humble enough to realize that our people is what made it happen.
We employ a diverse, innovative and passionate group of team members in a challenging and collaborative environment. Together, this combination supplies a tremendous amount of creative energy and different viewpoints to the organization. Our group values the concept of teamwork but embrace the skills, knowledge, and experience that each individual team member possesses. We reward our team members with compensation and benefits above the competition, including a generous tuition reimbursement program (Benefits for full-time employment). It is easy to see, how high we regard our team members. Ready to be part of something great?
