Quoting Management: Rick Goings, Chairman and CEO, commented, “Our second quarter results reinforce the importance of operating Tupperware Brands as a truly global business with a strong footprint across both established and emerging market economies. This provides us with a well-balanced source of earnings, reducing our reliance on any one market, while allowing us the opportunity to successfully cross pollinate ideas, products and practices around the world as we grow. But once more, the emerging markets have been the key driver of sales and profitability this quarter with particularly strong growth across both South America and Asia. Our strong position and growth in these emerging markets is driven by the power of our channel, our brand and our reputation for quality, which allows us to capitalize on the opportunities arising from more fully penetrating these markets and their emerging middle classes.”
