CHICAGO — IGA here said Bozzuto's has been named the winner of the IGA President's Cup, presented annually to the licensed wholesaler of the year in honor of its extraordinary effort in support of IGA's retailers and the brand.
This is the seventh time Cheshire, Conn.-based Bozzuto's has won the honor since the award's inception in 1973.
"Bozzuto's is strongly committed to helping its IGA retailers serve their communities in the best possible way and equally devoted to growing the power of the brand with new Bozzuto's-supplied stores," said Mark Batenic, chief executive officer of IGA. "In the course of the last year, Bozzuto's has played a vital role in the success of its IGA retailers by providing services that go well beyond that of supplying food.
"Day-in and day-out, Bozzuto's worked with IGA retailers to foster the regional connections that make the brand strong and IGA stores the 'preferred place to shop' in communities throughout the Northeast."
Bozzuto's will formally receive the President's Cup during a banquet at IGA's Global Rally next month in Las Vegas.
