“The 21 percent growth in local currency revenue reported today reflects a rapid adoption of digital tools by our sales force to combat the social restrictions surrounding COVID-19, and the increased consumer demand for our innovative and environmentally friendly products, as more consumers cook at home and are concerned with food safety and storage,” said Miguel Fernandez, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tupperware Brands.
“The improved performance of both top and bottom line these past two quarters are a positive sign that our Turnaround Plan is working.”
