In 2011, Julie and Ed commemorated Lifeway’s 25th Anniversary by ringing the NASDAQ bell. A lot has changed since 1986. Lifeway has acquired top competitors Helios Nutrition (in 2006) and Fresh Made Dairy (in 2009), giving them the #1 market share in probiotic dairy products.
Lifeway has also innovated several new ideas in the dairy industry by introducing breakthrough products such as ProBugs kefir for kids, BioKefir™, and Frozen Kefir. Lifeway has even gone as far as founding The Lifeway Kefir Shop, a delicious chain of frozen kefir cafés in the Chicago area.
Though many things have changed since 1986, our commitment to producing the highest quality cultured foods remains the same. After more than a quarter-century of dedication and innovation, the Lifeway family looks forward to building on our tradition of healthy and delicious living for many years to come.
