I been working at ipc for more than 5 years, before the the new time off affective, I had 7points, and now I only have 26.77hrs as uto. Shouldn’t I have 32hrs of uto? I haven’t been late or leave early.
You are correct. You should have started with 32 hours of UTO based on your points and years of service. We are currently working on this problem with our Kronos team and hope to have it resolved shortly. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns please stop by HR for assistance.

My supervisor said that – in our department – we’ll manage attendance the way we’ve been doing it (and not change to meet the new program). Can he/she do that?
Please come see us in HR to discuss. Operating under our old policy or supervisors managing their attendance “like they always have” is no longer an option. The new time-off policy was effective 9/30/2019. Any further questions on the time off policy, please come see us in HR.

Gift marks partnership between pork producer and food-bank supplier
Indiana Packers Corporation (IPC), the makers of INDIANA KITCHEN® branded pork products, has committed to donating approximately 25,000 pounds of its premium pork products, including pork, ham and bacon to Food Finders Food Bank, Inc.
“It just makes sense for us,” says Russ Yearwood, President and COO of IPC. “We’re about creating high-quality food that nourishes and sustains our families and communities. Our partnership with Food Finders is about getting that food to the people who need it most. We’re excited about this new partnership.”
While Indiana ranks among the top ten states in the country for agricultural output—and among the top five for pork production—Feeding America states that Hoosiers still experience food insecurity at levels above the national average. According to Feeding America’s latest data, one out of every seven Hoosiers has to deal with food insecurity, which is defined as a state of being without reliable access to adequate nutrition.
“Protein is crucial to a well-rounded diet, especially for growing children,” says Katy Bunder, President and CEO of Food Finders. “And meat is one of the most highly sought-after products for our clients facing hunger as quality protein can eat up a lot of a family’s food budget, so this is a very special donation for us.”
To maximize availability, IPC will donate its premium pork products in installments on a rolling basis throughout the year allowing Food Finders to maintain a steady supply of pork and protein in their inventory.
The first installment of its donation will be delivered during the week of January 29th.
Food Finders invites others, whether as corporations or individuals, to consider how they could also join forces with them in the fight against hunger. Visit www.food-finders.org for more info.
New swine feed mill project earns distinction from Miami County
Indiana Packers Corporation (IPC), the makers of INDIANA KITCHEN® branded pork products, has been selected as the 2017 recipient of Miami County’s “Industry of the Year Award.”
Indiana Packers received the award for its development of a new $25-million swine feed mill located on approximately 45 acres just outside of Peru, IN. The 30,000-square-foot facility will be operated by OP Nutrition, LLC—a subsidiary of Indiana Packers.
OP Nutrition is a producer of high-quality nutrient-rich swine feed. For its new feed mill, OP Nutrition will source corn and soybeans from local farmers in nearby counties, including Miami, Wabash and Fulton counties. OP Nutrition expects the new mill to produce approximately 250,000 tons of feed per year, most of which will go to local farms with hogs owned by Oracle Pork—a division of Indiana Packers.
“This new swine feed mill and OP Nutrition are major elements in the continuation of our comprehensive growth strategy,” says Russ Yearwood, President and Chief Operating Officer of Indiana Packers Corporation. “Great pork, bacon and ham begins with great feed, and this new feed mill will allow us to provide our farm partners with the highest quality feed available today.”
From the earliest stages of this project, Indiana Packers found many local and state organizations willing to lend their expertise: the Miami County Economic Development Authority, who assisted with the purchase of property within Miami County Industrial Park as well as facilitating many important steps in making this a successful venture; the Miami County Council, who negotiated supportive tax incentives; and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, who specifically helped secure the Hoosier Business Investment Tax Credit.
OP Nutrition expects to employ approximately 15 full-time on-site workers for its new feed mill.
The feed mill is expected to begin operations early October 2018.
IPC donates AEDs for entire Carroll County Sheriff’s Fleet
Indiana Packers Corporation (IPC), the makers of INDIANA KITCHEN® branded pork products, has provided the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office with more than $5,000 worth of new Automated External Defibrillator (AED) equipment. This gift ensures that each vehicle in the Sheriff’s fleet has an AED on hand to respond in life-or-death emergencies involving sudden cardiac arrest.
AEDs are used to treat victims suffering a cardiac arrest. In the United States, an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest occurs approximately once every 90 seconds. AEDs can evaluate heart rhythm and emit an electric shock to the heart if necessary to restore a normal beat.
“In many situations, the difference between life or death is a matter of minutes or even seconds,” says Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby. “Since our deputies are often first responders, our team is extremely grateful for this gift. This generous donation from Indiana Packers enables our Sheriff’s Deputies and Reserve Deputies to provide emergency medical care in situations when speed is absolutely vital.”
For victims of sudden cardiac arrest, time is especially of the essence.
According to the Center for Disease Control, brain death or permanent death can occur in just four to six minutes after a cardiac arrest, and a victim’s chances of survival decrease 7 to 10% percent with each minute that goes by without CPR and defibrillation. The Carroll County Sheriff and all of Sheriff’s Deputies are trained to administer both.
“We’re proud to partner with our Sheriff’s Office to safeguard the health of our community,” says Russ Yearwood, President and Chief Operating Officer of Indiana Packers Corporation. “Indiana Packers values the first responders of Carroll County—whether they be police officers, firefighters, EMTs or one neighbor looking out for another—and we’re happy to support them in this endeavor.”
Indiana Packers Corporation (IPC), the makers of INDIANA KITCHEN® branded pork products, is officially opening its new 99,000-square-foot cold storage distribution center, alongside its existing pork-production plant in Delphi, Indiana.
“Without question, this expansion is a major milestone in our company’s growth strategy,” says Russ Yearwood, President and Chief Operating Officer of Indiana Packers Corporation. “The expansion allows us to improve inventory logistics, speed up our delivery capacity, and most importantly, better serve our growing regional and global customer base.” The project was officially completed early last month.
Key to the project were several infrastructure improvements, including a traffic study and roadway reconstruction, enabling Indiana Packers Corporation to optimize its existing property. These infrastructure improvements were a result of close collaboration between Indiana Packers and groups like the Carroll County Economic Development Corporation, the Carroll County Redevelopment Commission and the City of Delphi.
The cold-storage distribution center will further advance Indiana Packers’ business and INDIANA KITCHENâ brand strength in a very competitive pork-production industry by significantly improving the company’s inventory-management capabilities.
At the same time, it also reinforces the company’s relationship with the community. “The $23 million project and our recent $40 million dollar bacon expansion, demonstrates our long-term commitment to investing in Carroll County and supporting economic development,” adds Yearwood.
Indiana Packers expects the new distribution center to create approximately 50 new job openings, primarily forklift operators, warehouse coordinators and team supervisors.
Visit to Showcase Manufacturing Heritage, Forge Ties with Ship’s Namesake
Future crew members of the USS Indiana—the first naval vessel to be named after the state in 70 years—will tour Indiana Packers Corporation on the morning of Tuesday, November 7, 2017, as part of the USS Indiana Commissioning Committee State Tour.
Part of a grand send-off, the tour is meant to demonstrate true Hoosier hospitality to the crew members of the USS Indiana and help them forge strong connections to their vessel’s namesake by introducing them to Indiana’s rich manufacturing, agricultural and military heritage.
In addition to touring the facility, USS Indiana crew members will be welcomed by a contingent of armed forces veterans from Indiana Packers.
“It’s truly an honor to be able to host these members of the crew of the USS Indiana at our production headquarters,” says Russ Yearwood, President of Indiana Packers. “We hope we can provide them with a memorable experience to take on board their ship—that in the ways that matter most, Hoosiers are just like them—generous and hardworking, quick to help and ready to serve.”
In tow with the crew will be a large replica of the USS Indiana for display. The actual vessel is a 377-foot-long, 36-foot-wide nuclear-powered submarine that weighs over 7,820 tons and is largely a product of Indiana manufacturing. More than 100 Indiana manufacturers contributed to making of the vessel.
A Virginia-class submarine, the USS Indiana is equipped with sophisticated surveillance technology and weaponry and designed for a broad spectrum of missions, including assisting NATO allies, gathering intelligence and deploying Navy SEALs to land for special ops.
Once launched, the submarine will circumnavigate the globe many times over the next 32 years—the operational lifetime of one load of nuclear fuel.
