The Indian Packing Company was a company that was involved in the canned meat industry. When the company was absorbed by the Illinois-based Acme Packing Company, it had facilities in Green Bay, Wisconsin, as well as Providence, Rhode Island, Greenwood, Indiana, and Dupont, Indiana.

Today, the company is remembered as the namesake of the Green Bay Packers. The fledgling football team took its name after Curly Lambeau, an employee, successfully asked the company for money for jerseys and equipment and use of the company's athletic field.
