TRENTON, N.J. — Philip Scaduto, vice president of Food Circus Supermarkets, was elected chairman of the board of the New Jersey Food Council at the organization's annual meeting.

"With deep family roots in the founding of this organization, I am well aware of the prestigious history of both the organization itself and of those who have come before me," Scaduto said in a statement. "While the bar has been set high by outgoing chairman Jim McCaffrey, I am confident that with Food Council president Linda Doherty and her dedicated Trenton staff, we will continue to improve upon the Food Council's reputation as one of the most prestigious industry associations in the country."

Food Circus, based in Middletown, N.J., operates 10 Super FoodTown stores in Monmouth, Middlesex and Ocean counties in New Jersey.

Scaduto is a nephew of Joe Azzolina, a founder of Food Circus and of the NJFC.
