Tupperware Brands Corp. CEO Miguel Fernandez announced Monday that Target is now selling its popular food storage containers. 

Tupperware products can now be purchased at one of Target's over 1,900 U.S. stores or through the retailer's website. The move to start offering the "curated product selection" through Target comes amid the food storage container company's ongoing effort to "reinvent" itself and sell through new channels, according to a LinkedIn post by Fernandez.

"Younger customers less familiar with direct sales will now find our brand in retail and from there can develop personalized relationships with our one-and-only sales force to find products tailored to their needs," Fernandez wrote. "Customers who already love Tupperware parties – whether in-person or online – will now also be able to pick up their favorite essential food storage options at a store nearby."
