MORTON GROVE, Ill., March 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lifeway Foods, Inc. (Nasdaq: LWAY), makers of the nutritious, probiotic dairy beverage called Kefir, announced today, ProBugs(TM), the organic Kefir designed for kids, has secured new and expanded distribution for all three SKU's, in several chains across the country.

This new distribution is in addition to the growing success of the product line at existing retailers such as Whole Foods, Kroger, and other smaller independent chains.

Julie Smolyansky, Lifeway's CEO, commented, "We are very excited that ProBugs(TM) continues to grow tremendously, and as product line introduced only a year and a half ago, we feel it is already a success. Each month we ship more product than the previous month and this is a clear indication of the product's success."

About Lifeway Foods

Lifeway, recently named Fortune Small Business' 97th Fastest Growing Small Business, and one of only 4 companies to ever be named to the list four straight years in a row, is America's leading supplier of the cultured dairy product known as kefir, and now America's only supplier of Organic Kefir.

Lifeway recently introduced a series of innovative new products such as pomegranate kefir, Greek-style kefir, a children's line of organic kefir products called ProBugs(TM) in a no-spill pouch in kid-friendly flavors like Orange Creamy Crawler and Sublime Slime Lime, and a line of organic whole milk kefir. Lifeway also produces a line of products marketed in US Hispanic communities, called La Fruta, Drinkable Yogurt (yogurt drinks distinct from kefir). In addition to its line of Kefir products, the company produces a variety of cheese products and recently introduced a line of organic pudding called It's Pudding!.
