Some products suit a particular size and shape of packaging.

We expect certain products to look a certain way. To see a shelf-full of the same size and style of pot just with different company labelling is normal to us. This is because of our expectation that a product will look a particular way. Manufacturers know that there is comfort in familiarity.
