BOTHELL, WA, Oct. 30, 2012 -- HaloSource, Inc., the clean water technology company, has entered into a development and production agreement with Tupperware Brands Corporation, the U.S.-based global direct selling company, to provide HaloSource’s patented HaloPure® technology in cartridges for Tupperware’s new line of gravity-based water purifiers that will be initially launched through Tupperware India.
HaloSource and Tupperware Brands spent over a year developing customized cartridges for the devices that incorporate HaloSource’s innovative HaloPure® drinking water disinfection technology, which reduces waterborne viruses and bacteria. The modular design will allow for flexibility of performance, depending on the various water quality conditions found around the world.
This agreement with Tupperware Brands, which sells multiple brands through its global independent direct sales force of 2.7 million, will allow HaloSource to further deepen its presence in the water purification market.
In 2009, HaloPure® became the first new drinking water technology in 30 years to be granted both Manufacture-For-Use and Device registrations by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), widely recognized as having the world's most stringent performance requirements for water purification. In addition, HaloPure media and devices have received registration by the China Ministry of Health and cartridge/device registrations in the US and Brazil.
Martin Coles, Chief Executive Officer of HaloSource commented, “Tupperware is a major consumer brand with solid distribution across the world. We are very excited to be working with a company with such high quality standards and market reach. The addition of our HaloPure technology will allow Tupperware to deliver safer drinking water at an affordable price. This alliance represents our shared values and common goal of making a real difference in the lives of others.”
