French term or phrase: 1 boîte 4/4 d'abricots au sirop
What does the 4/4 actually stand for? It must be something easy, right? I have heard it but never really asked.

Thanks to all.

En conserve, les formats des boîtes sont des multiples : la boîte 4/4 a une capacité de 850 ml, la boîte contient 425 ml, la boîte 1/4 correspond au quart de la boîte 4/4. (http://www.legumes-infos.com/idees_01.html)

La boîte 4/4, d\'une contenance de 850 ml, constitue la taille de référence des conserves, avec une portion qui convient pour 4 personnes (www.megacom.net/~ericc/en_cache/83.php)
