Date:11/26/2008

MORTON GROVE, Ill., Nov. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lifeway Foods, Inc., (Nasdaq: LWAY), makers of a nutritious, probiotic dairy beverage called Kefir, announced today Lifeway's Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase program of up to 100,000 shares. Under such a program, Lifeway Foods may repurchase up to 100,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock through the open market within a period of one year from the date of the first purchase. The Company will use its available cash resources to fund the stock repurchase program.

Julie Smolyansky, Lifeway's CEO, commented, "We are very pleased that our Board of Directors has approved this share repurchase program. This new 100,000 share approval demonstrates our continuing commitment to growth and enhancing shareholder value. This buyback will be funded through our internal operating cash flows. In December the cost of milk, our largest input cost, decreased to the lowest level in 24 months, and this will only serve to continue to bolster our already strong cash position and balance sheet."

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 Kefir is a dairy beverage that contains Lifeway's exclusive 10 Live and Active probiotic cultures.

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!.
