Venue: Tupperware, Gurgaon
Date: 28 February 2017
Tupperware recently organized a fun day for a handful of bloggers and media influencers and we were happy to get an invite. Being a little unusual from the other Fun-Dos that we pursue, we were all excited.
The event started with a short presentation on the Tupperware range of products. During the course of their addresses Shilpa Ajwani, Managing Director and Chandan Deep Singh Dang, Marketing Director of Tupperware India took the guests through the history of Tupperware. They have been in business for eons now and the first Tupperware Party was held in USA in 1946-47 with a few women. Over time Tupperware has changed character. While it started as a brand whose products helped in food preservation, thus ensuring healthy food consumption and minimal wastage, over time it has moved to the culinary section. It is now a fancy kitchen accessory as well.
Tupperware started its operations in India in 1996 as a premium kitchenware brand. They have a host of products line (example – water bottle) created specially for the India consumers here. Tupperware products are made from 100% food grade, virgin plastic and are known to be safe and hygenic.
The next part of the event was demonstrations by Tupperware’s in house chef Ayesha Nallaseth. She introduced us to Tupperware’s Time Savers Range of products. This includes Smart Chopper, compact cold-pressed juice maker Juist and Speedy Chef, a whisk. She demonstrated the items one by one and made quick dishes – salads, juice, dessert – using these hacks.
This was followed by an interesting session where the guests were assigned one of the above products and they made a dish of their choice using this tool and the ingredients (fruits, vegetables and seasoning) that were available. We were allotted the Juist and made a healthy but tasty juice with oranges, tomatoes, lemon and sprig of mint. We were pleasantly surprised with the end product. Thank you Tupperware for bringing out the super chef in us!
The event concluded with a simple lunch. At the end of the event, the bloggers were gifted items from Time Savers Range.
Before attending this event we did find Tupperware products expensive. During the course of the party many guests related their experience with Tupperware that were more than 20 years old and had been gifted to them as inheritance! This does seem value for money. Given the health benefits as well as their kitchen range does not require electricity (so no carbon footprint) it is clearly a lifestyle choice. We know what to gift when there is a birthday in the family next.
We are already converts. Tupperware party added another dimension to the GOOD LIFE and we look forward to attending more such events.
