MASHANTUCKET, CT — Bozzuto's Inc. held its 2020 Merchandising Marketplace Sept. 29-30 at the Fox Tower at Foxwoods, here.

Because of the COVID-19 situation, the event followed CDC and Foxwoods regulations for gatherings and provided additional precautions for people's safety: one-way, one-sided aisles; engagement zone floor decals to assist with proper social distancing; hand sanitizing stations at registration and on the show floor; and Plexiglass protective barriers and eight-foot-high booth separation drapes at all booths.

One thing that didn't change from previous shows: Fresh produce from a variety of companies around the country was well represented.

Headquartered in Cheshire, CT, Bozzuto's Inc. is a total service wholesale distributor of food and household products to retailers in New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Established in 1945, the company is headed by Michael A. Bozzuto, who is chairman, president and chief executive officer.
