LAFAYETTE, Ind. WLFI) — A local pork producer just made a sizable investment in the community's future.
The $30 million addition adds 125,000 square feet of space to the Indiana Packers compound in Carroll County.
Indiana Kitchen bacon and pork products are in grocery stores across the Midwest.
The new larger distribution center will allow the company to expand to more stores.
Although the new space doesn't add any immediate jobs, growth can only mean one thing.
"As our company continues to grow, as we continue to drive our business, that growth represents future opportunity for people looking for work, for people who want to come work for us and the people in this community," said Curtis Hansen, the director of marketing at IPC.
Indiana Packers has been in business in Delphi for 26 years.
The company says this is just another example of its long-term commitment to Carroll County.
