Name That Company



I trace my roots back to 1946, when I was founded by a chemist. Inspired by paint can lids, he soon patented a double sealed airtight lid, which he made from a plastic he created. My “Wonder Bowl,” an early flagship product, wasn’t the hit with homemakers that it should have been until Ms. Brownie Wise was hired. She helped make me a household name, building a network of women to sell my wares via parties. Today, based in Orlando, Florida, and with a recent market value above $930 million, I hold more than 8,500 patents. Who am I? ¦

Think you know the answer? We’ll announce it in next week’s edition.
