I have found the following sentences in a food package.
Date of packaging 10th May 2010. Best before 15 days from the date of packaging.
Are these sentences correct? or should it be... Best after 15 days from the date of packaging.
It's a way of the food packagers avoiding doing the calculation (easy, in this case, but less so towards the end of a month) 'Best before [10+15] May.'
