Item 8.01 Other Events

Tupperware Brands Corporation (“Tupperware” or the “Company”) had a fire begin on December 11, 2007 at its main finished goods warehouse at its Hemingway, S.C. Tupperware U.S., Inc. facility. The fire resulted in a total loss of that building and the inventory stored there. There have been no injuries connected with the fire, and the cause has not been determined.

Manufacturing capability was not impacted, nor was the Company’s distribution infrastructure directly impacted. The Company is currently working to minimize potential disruption with its independent sales force, including increasing production in Hemingway and its European and Mexican manufacturing facilities to be able to supply products. The Company is insured for damages to the warehouse, inventory, and costs associated with disruption of the business.

A copy of a press release issued by Tupperware reporting the fire is included as Exhibit 99.1
