Phil Tozzi is an industry pioneer and veteran of 30 years. His experience within the industry is multi-faceted, from working as a rep to owning his own company. His journey began when Phil met Bob Golick, son of the president of the successful brokerage firm Golick-Martin. They established the very successful natural division of Go Sales; the first natural broker for Knudsen Juice and for Mother’s brand by Quaker. Food Enterprises of New York, the leading area mass-market broker at the time acquired Go Sales. While Phil was impressed with the seemingly limitless resources of such an operation, he noticed that they were not really in touch with their customer base, particularly on the natural products side. This inspired Phil to launch Tozzi & Associates in the fall of 1986.
