Hello. Carlos

First of all, thank you for your service. As regards bringing a new canned food item into a store, I would take two approaches. One, talk to grocery chains--the best way to get many stores purchasing your item-- and discover what canned food distributors they use. Then approach those distributors about bringing your canned item into their offerings. Food distributors have a lot of sway with grocery stores and in particular their purchasing agents.

Much success with your new venture.
