2: Could younger buyers reverse Tupperware’s dip in momentum? – Brand Story   

Tupperware has had a difficult start to 2023. In March, they announced that their 2022 sales were 18% lower than the year prior. In April, Tupperware warned that it was at-risk of going out of business. While many factors are at play, Tupperware could greatly benefit from attracting more young buyers. 

  • From its early days, Tupperware has primarily been sold by housewives (self-employed salespeople) at “Tupperware parties.”  
  • It was not until 2019 that Tupperware even launched an ecommerce platform. Young consumers (Gen Z and Millennials) often do not know Tupperware sellers and have been unsure where to purchase the product.
  • We can see Tupperware’s disconnect with younger consumers in their QuestBrand data. Tupperware’s brand equity is higher in older consumers than younger consumers across almost all components of brand equity (+10.5) – familiarity (+18.2), quality (+18.8), and consideration (+17.5).

3: 20 Brands Attracting Gen Z’s Attention Right Now – AdAge-Harris Poll

May brought the release of our latest AdAge-Harris Poll Gen Z brand tracker. This quarterly index uses QuestBrand data to rank the top 20 brands by brand equity growth among Gen Z adults (ages 18-24). 

  • Converse (+13.6), Rubbermaid (+13.1), and Blizzard (+12.0) topped the list as the top growth brands from Q4 2022 to Q1 2023. 
  • Read the AdAge article to discover the top 20, and learn how these brands successfully grew in Gen Z’s esteem. 

We continue to see brands that leverage new media and culturally relevant partnerships win with Gen Z. If it’s Dr. Squatch releasing special edition soaps for ‘The Mandalorian’ and Jurassic Park, Lego bringing new attention to Indiana Jones and classic Disney characters, or Kraft Heinz partnering with Ed Sheeran to plug its new hot sauce, top-performing brands are recognizing they can reach new heights (and audiences) by tapping into cross-promotion.”Harris Poll Co-CEO Will Johnson
