Tupperware Brands Corporation announced Friday from its Orlando headquarters that the board of directors has declared the company's regular quarterly dividend of 68 cents per share, payable Oct. 5, to shareholders of record as of Sept. 18.
After acquisitions in Dec. 2005, Tupperware Corporation changed its name to Tupperware Brands Corporation to mark the dramatic expansion in its brand portfolio. The company now sells products under a total of seven different labels, consisting of Tupperware plus a half dozen specialty brands of personal care items.
Product brands and categories marketed through the Tupperware brand include design-centric food preparation, storage and serving solutions for the kitchen and home, as well as six brands of beauty and personal care products through the Avroy Shlain, BeautiControl, Fuller Cosmetics, NaturCare, Nutrimetics and Nuvo lines.
Tupperware Brands Corporation is the leading global marketer of innovative, premium products across multiple brands utilizing a relationship-based selling method via an independent sales force of three million individuals.
Along with its person-to-person approach, Tupperware Brands uphold its commitment to a worldwide presence, with sales in almost 100 countries located across five continents. The company was initially founded in 1946; the versatility and convenience of inventor Earl Tupper's "miracle" products helped to launch the plastics revolution of the post-war decade.
Following its initial domestic success, the company expanded into Europe, Japan and Australia, with sales offices in Africa and Latin America since before 1970.
