ORLANDO, Fla. --- Tupperware Brands Corporation, parent company of popular Tupperware products, has paid tithe on the first 12 months of a world-wide exclusive foot-washing bowl contract with the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
The undisclosed tithing sum will go to support communion expenses for Adventist churches around the world.
"As Adventist numbers grow the cost of Welch's grape juice and appropriate wafers is going through the roof, so we are grateful that Tupperware has seen the light," said GC Tupperware Party Director Teight Seel.
The footwashing contract makes Tupperware the exclusive foot-washing bowl supplier for the denomination going forward. "Pastors and their staff have received received strict instructions from the General Conference not to cut corners with cheap mixing bowls from the dollar store," said Seel.
He added that if Tupperware consents to annual goodwill offerings to the church, the GC might award the company exclusive rights to be the only officially sanctioned potluck container brand.
