Tupperware is the brand name of a home products line that includes preparation, storage, and serving products for the kitchen and home, which debuted in 1946.

Tupperware is a wholly owned subsidiary of Tupperware Brands Corporation.
In today's common parlance, the brand name "Tupperware" has become a genericized trademark or eponym—much like the brand names "Kleenex" and "Band-aid"—refers to an entire class of products, not only the brand to which it denotes. Typically, the word is used to signify any plastic storage container for the kitchen, not only Tupperware branded products.
