Our story began when avid inventor, Earl Tupper, created Tupperware in the early 1940s. Today, in more than 100 countries, Tupperware is known for its design-focused storage, serving and food preparation solutions for the kitchen and home.
Experimenting with a purified by-product of the oil-refining process, the American invented a durable, flexible, odourless, non-toxic and light weight plastic that he used to create storage containers.
Tupper’s aim was to develop a product that would keep food fresh in the new age of electric and gas refrigerators, so popular in post-war America. He patented the ingenious Tupper Seal in 1949, not long after introducing the range into department and hardware stores. Unfortunately, consumers did not understand how to use the Seal, and the product languished on shelves.
Jupiter Sales Tupperware is situated in Ga-Rankuwa Industrial Park.
