Comments: Corporate sales rose about 3% last year, but beauty sales dipped nearly 9%. Beauty sales in North America fell 8%, due to lower volume and unfavorable product mix. Company executives blamed the decline in volume and mix on a smaller Fuller Mexico sales force (due to ineffective recruiting from high field manager turnover), and a smaller and less active sales force in BeautiControl (reflecting ineffective recruiting and the inability to motivate the passive seller base). Those results are a bit of a letdown for Tupperware, which, in recent years, has found great success in Latin America by convincing consumers to try its beauty brands before it starts pushing its food storage solutions. That’s because Latin American women care more about their looks than any other region in the world. (For more on Brazil and its beauty market, see p. 42 in this issue.)

For the first quarter of 2014, beauty sales fell nearly 12% to less than $128 million. Meanwhile, corporate sales were flat at $663 million.
