Why do companies have the same products in different countries but call them by different names? For example, in American the household cleaner Mr. Clean is called Mr. Proper here in Germany. Dawn dishwashing liquid is called Fairy. Carl's Jr is Hardee's in England. Johnson & Johnson is Penaten. And I think Sure deodorant is called Rexona but not sure. It's so frustrating when looking for my favorite things and can't find them only to find out they are called something else. Okay, the major things have the same name (Nike, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Adidas, etc.) but it's the little things that count. Does anyone have a website or a list of the product name changes? Any other products you have come across with different names? This would be helpful.
How annoying, yes. Long live globalisation and the homogenisation of all brand names.
