Julie Smolyansky
President & CEO, Lifeway Foods
Julie Smolyansky became the youngest female CEO of a publicly held firm when she took over her father's kefir business, in 2002 at the age of 27. Since being named CEO and director of Lifeway Foods (NASDAQ: LWAY) Julie has continued the company's growth trajectory with creative product development and marketing, bringing a Russian product into the U.S. mainstream and boosting annual company revenues to nearly $80 million by 2012. Julie has vivid memories of being an early "guinea pig" for the kefir business founded by her parents in 1986, whether sampling new flavors and formulations, or traveling to food shows to help her parents build Lifeway into the first U.S. company taken public by a Russian immigrant.

Julie Smolyansky, President and CEO of Lifeway Foods, public health advocate and member of the UN Foundation's Global Entrepreneurs Council, announced today that she has submitted comments for review and possible inclusion in the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
...
"I submitted my recommendations because I want to be sure Americans possess the latest information about healthy food options such as probiotics so they can live healthy and happy lives," said Ms. Smolyansky. "The guidelines should incorporate the latest nutritional thinking that includes foods like kefir and other probiotic-rich foods that can aid digestive health, improve immune response, and aid in the management of several chronic ailments."
The Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion produces the Dietary Guidelines for Americans every five years along with the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). A committee of nutrition experts is tasked with review peer-reviewed science articles on diet and health as well as contributions from nutrition industry experts such as Ms. Smolyansky. The 2010 version of the guidelines recommended individuals should balance eating more vegetables, fruits, and seafood with increased physical activity.
"Healthcare costs are rising in part because we often treat ailments with expensive medical intervention while healthy eating backed by science can be used as effective prevention," continued Ms. Smolyansky. "These recommendations are just a part of my global advocacy work on presenting new solutions to the global health crisis."
Ms. Smolyansky is a proponent of maintaining health through both physical activity and proper nutrition. She participates in several health-based initiatives including Every Mother Counts, an advocacy and mobilization campaign to increase education and support for maternal mortality reduction globally. As a member of the Global Entrepreneurs Council of the United Nations Foundation, she works towards solving the greatest global challenges of our time by looking at situations through the lens of an entrepreneur, including global malnutrition and human rights issues in the United States and around the world.
