MORTON GROVE, Ill., June 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lifeway Foods, Inc., (Nasdaq: LWAY), makers of the nutritious, probiotic dairy beverage called kefir, announced today that they are now using milk that comes from cows not treated with hormones. This 100% certified hormone free milk comes with a Farmers Pledge, which Lifeway will market on the labels of its products. This change came as a response to a growing demand for hormone and antibiotic milk by customers.
Julie Smolyansky, CEO said "We are pleased to now offer milk that is certified 100% hormone free to our growing customer base that has recently voiced demand for this type milk. Previously the milk we offered was hormone and antibiotic free, however, we now have a Farmer's Pledge that certifies the milk is hormone free. We think this added benefit will continue to help us reach a wider group of health conscious consumers."
