Founded in 1946 by Earl Silas Tupper, Tupperware is a brand of home products that sells the following items through its Tupperware representatives: kitchen and home preparation, storage, containment and serving items. The company develops, manufactures, and distributes its items via its parent company, the Tupperware Brands Corporation. Today it is marketed and sold by approximately 1.9 million consultants. That is what Tupperware is best known for – its consultants who do home parties to sell products. The products are well known for their quality and “burping seal,” that seem to give it an edge against its competitors.
