The Indian Packing Company was an American canned meat company that operated between 1919 and 1921. It was founded in Delaware and had various facilities across the country in ... It was purchased by the Acme Packing Company, which shut down in 1943 due to supply shortages related to World War II. The company is notable due to its connection to the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL). Curly Lambeau, one of the co-founders of the Packers, worked as a shipping clerk in 1919 for the Indian Packing Company. In return for use of the company's athletic field and money for sports equipment, the team took on the name "Packers". Although the company quickly faded from the picture, its name stuck and is still in use today.
