In short, I sure hope so!
Both Indiana Packers (under the Indiana Kitchen brand) and Specialty Foods Group (under several brands, including Kentucky Legend & Artisan Crafted) produce exceptional products – available locally through several of the larger national or regional retail supermarkets. As we grow, one of the challenges will be how we enable team members to buy our brands. Right now, if you are an Indiana Packers “legacy” team member, the easiest way to do this is to visit your local supermarket (I’ve purchased Kentucky Legend ham & turkey products from Payless in Lafayette). If you’re a SFG “legacy” team member, it may be more of a challenge, depending on the availability of Indiana Kitchen in the Owensboro area. In the future, we’ll be looking for ways to make this easier for team members to purchase our products.
