Tupperware, founded in 1946, is a company that has changed ownership many times, yet have kept the same portion standards. The first product of itâ€™s kind that allowed homeowners to store their food with an extended shelf life. Their portioned sized products also helped the consumer prep and store particular portions. For most of the companyâ€™s existence, drink cups have remained 8 fluid ounces. From the 40s to the 90s, the standard Tupperware meal storage units have remained in the range of 1 to 3 cups.
Tupperware – Pioneer of Portion Size:
Tupperware is truly the first American innovation that both aided in portion size education, and portion control. Below are a few pictures of 1980s Tupperware products that are from my childhood, and for some reason felt the need to keep them for all these years.
