Indian Packing Corporation[edit]

I'm going to move this article shortly as I've been researching this company. The new name should be Indian Packing Corporation. The corporation was created in 1919 by the consolidation of the New England Supply and Indian Packing (based in Providence) and Green Bay Packing. The company and corporation are often used (incorrectly) interchangeably. Even team histories get this wrong. But this sort of explains why the team became the Green Bay Packers and not the Indian Packers.Americasroof (talk) 21:10, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Brave of you to pick this up, and I'm a bit at a loss why no one has really put any research into this before. It seems simple enough, especially if one has access to an archive with Green Bay-region newspapers. One thing I did want to note is that the Indian Packing Company did exist prior to 1919. This is an announcement that the company agreed to meat inspections by the Bureau of Animal Industry in 1914. The current article implies (intentional or not) that it formed in 1919. A government list of independent slaughterhouses assembled in 1917 also listed Indian Packing in Green Bay. --Ando228 (talk) 19:46, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

"Council Meats"[edit]

This article mentions "Council Meats", but doesn't say what council meats are, or link to a page that does. I'd recommend either defining the term, or leaving it out. BevansDesign (talk) 16:28, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
