Tupperware is a worldwide producer of Polyethylene-based kitchenware and food containers. The company is currently based out of Orlando Florida and has been in business for over sixty years. Tupperware is best known for its line of sealable, stackable, high stress, temperature-resistant food containers that have become common kitchen items all over the world. Tupperware began in 1946 by Earl Silas Tupper when he met Thomas Damigella and Brownie Wise who were trying to sell household products through Stanley Home Products. The three entrepreneurs joined together and began producing the line of Tupperware that has turned into the product base it is today. Tupperware, a member of the DSA, supports charities and fundraisers through direct donations. The company’s management team claims to be strongly committed to giving back to communities and helping those in need.
Many Tupperware products originally boasted the patented “burping seal”, exclusive to Tupperware. Most Tupperware containers are made from plastic. The company also produces cutlery, cookware, and tools, in addition to picnic sets, school lunch sets, microwaveable sets, and freezer sets. Many of Tupperware’s products are stackable, can be bent, warped and treated with stress while maintaining shape. Tupperware products come in a variety of colors, including holiday themes.
Tupperware items and item sets range from $10 to $550 dollars depending on the product and its quality. The Company distributes its products a variety of different ways including Tupperware Consultants, Tupperware parties, catalogues and flyers, and web sites that focus on selling the products and recruiting new Tupperware consultants. Tupperware consultants have the opportunity to distribute products in exchange for varying levels of compensation, which includes discounts, commissions, and bonuses.
Starting a Tupperware business requires the purchase of a kit. New Tupperware Consultants can choose from the Business Kit for $79.99 or the Executive Business Kit for $119.99. Each kit contains products and marketing tools.

The Tupperware compensation plan starts with entry-level consultants buying a business kit ($79.99) or an executive kit ($119.99). Consultants are expected to achieve $250 in sales within 4 months and earn a 25% share of a profit on their retail sales. In addition, you will obtain a 5% bonus if you accomplish monthly sales of $1,200 and 10% for monthly sales of $3,200.
In addition, you also attain royalties on sales produced by your recruits. Once you have hired three new team members, all of which has made at least $500 in individual monthly sales volume, or a total sales volume for the four of you of $2,000, you will be preferred to be Manager and gain commissions ranging from 4% to 8% depending on how many recruits you’ve made. If you have recruited 9 consultants and have achieved $10,000 total team sales volume, you will be promoted to Director. Directors gain royalty payments of 6% to 12% on your team’s sales volume, as well as qualifying for Director Development Bonuses.
The fact that Tupperware runs a legitimate company with best material, worldwide distribution and an enticing benefit plan does not mean that it’s the right chance for you and your family.
In spite of whatever your potential sponsor or upline leader states, it will bring work to develop a rewarding network marketing company. You have to present your lines, services and opportunity to wide numbers of new people continually over an extended period of time.
