Cultural differences and milk packaging.
Most brands divide their milk offerings in a couple different kinds depending on the fat percentage. Going from "whole milk' to "fat free milk".
In Europe and the US, the following coloring code is used on the packaging:
blue: fat free
In Brazil green and red have switched positions. ( Green package means whole milk and red means low fat milk).
Big deal you might think. But apart from me buying the wrong milk for the last year based on my Belgian habits, it is also a funny difference!
