While it's nice to know when it was packaged, I'd like to know when it expires.

Too often when buying deli or produce, there will be a "packed on mm/dd/yy" but no expiration date. While I can figure out that a two-week old loaf of bread is probably past its prime, a cheese can be gone in a week or three, even four. Yes, there's the sniff test, but it'd be nice to just glance at the label and see that not only is the raclette good now, it will still be good next week.
I'd prefer a "best by" date than a "packed on" date...or better yet, put both.
