"More than anything, I know that he would have been delighted by the arrival of his two granddaughters, Leah and Misha. Michael's legacy will remain with us through my little girls as well as through his now-famous Lifeway Kefir, available in tens of thousands of stores nationwide."The last four years of the recession have been difficult for many people. Now that the recovery process is underway, I know my father would have been inspired and excited to see America rebuild in a time of growth and transformation. I believe he would have been especially proud to see Lifeway Foods surpass $2 million in weekly sales, a milestone for our company. We expect 2012 to be another record year of sales and profitability. If there is any doubt that the American Dream exists, Michael Smolyansky is an example that it absolutely does. Rest in Peace, Dad," concludes Julie Smolyansky. Lifeway Foods continues to thrive, launching new product lines, expanding into new markets and forming new partnerships. The ongoing success of the company is a fitting tribute to Michael Smolyansky, a man who lived the American Dream. Learn more about Lifeway Foods at http://www.lifeway.net/.
