is time."

The synergies between the Lifeway and Fresh Made provide natural benefits to Lifeway's shareholders," Mr. Smolyansky added. "We serve the same customers, we share the same shelf space, we purchase the same raw materials, and we exhibit at the same trade shows. This transaction will enhance Lifeway's purchasing power, increase our ability to target our market category, and alleviate some of the competitive pressures in our business" said Mr. Smolyansky.

"This transaction is a major step and another milestone for Lifeway, as we continue to expand the Kefir phenomenon with our line of great-tasting, healthy products. This elevates our competitive positioning in the marketplace and creates a tremendous footprint in the growing probiotic and functional dairy market," she added.

Lifeway Foods had 2008 total sales of approximately $44,500,000, a 15% increase over 2007.
