Jack Landsmanas Stern is a successful entrepreneur and CEO of Corporativa Kosmos, a well-known conglomerate based in Mexico. However, maybe more significantly, he is the grandson of Pablo Landsmanas. Continuing his grandfather’s legacy of philanthropy and good will is what Jack Landsmanas Stern seems to be deeply rooted in. The Landsmanas family is originally from Lithuania, but in 1959, Pablo Landsmanas arrived in Mexico and started working in the meat industry. Paying close attention and learning everything he could about the industry, Pablo went on to open his own butcher shop in Mexico City, La Modelo. His path eventually led to founding of the Kosmos Corporation, a group of food service companies that abide by the highest standards of quality.
For more than 50 years, Pablo Landsmanas, Kosmos Corporation, and now Jack Landsmanas, have maintained an excellent and trusted reputation in the food service industry, becoming industry leaders and giants. The Kosmos Corporation is the largest food service provider in Mexico, where their services extend out to schools, hotels and even boats. Kosmos Corporation provides services for over three million people a day. In an effort to honor his grandfather and what his grandfather stood for, Jack Landsmanas created the Pablo Landsmanas Foundation in 2016. Thanks to this foundation, just about half a million meals are donated to those in need, such as teen moms, Holocaust survivors and persons afflicted with HIV/AIDS.
The goal of the foundation is to positively affect Mexican society through health, food and education. Jack Landsmanas Stern operates under the motto “Por Ti, por Ellos, por Mexico.” “For you, for them, for Mexico” is the motto of the Pablo Landsmanas Foundation and exemplifies the humanness that Jack desires to be a part of the work that he does. Through Kosmos Corporation, jobs are created, people’s needs are addressed and the Mexican community benefits greatly. Kosmos Corporation employees even have the chance to receive scholarships from their company for their children’s education. In so many ways, Jack Landsmanas Stern ensures that his grandfather’s legacy stays alive through the philanthropic efforts of his foundation and the ethical operating of the family business.
