Costco Ground Beef - Packaged today, best before tomorrow. Why?

The last couple times we've gone to Costco looking for bulk ground beef (we make chili in large batches and freeze individual portions), we noticed that it had been packaged that day, and was marked best before the very next day.

I've never asked an employee, probably should have. And if this question bears no fruit I will ask next time we are there. But does anyone have any idea why this would be? We never buy it because we are going to be using it within a couple days, but not the day immediately after we buy it.
Possibly relevant information, we are in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Thanks in advance!
