The legacy of Don Pablo Landsmanas, businessman and philanthropist of Lithuanian origin, laid the foundations to erect one of the strongest conglomerates in Mexico: Kosmos Corporate, the country’s largest group of companies in food services.
Don Pablo Landsmanas arrived in Mexico on September 25, 1959, and from the first day, he worked in the meat industry. He collaborated in the company of the Brener family – today Sigma Alimentos -, where he learned the secrets of the food industry.
That experience, coupled with his interest in offering products and services of the highest quality, led him to found a butcher shop, La Modelo, in Mexico City.
That was the seed that would give rise to Kosmos Corporations, which over time has established itself as a group of companies capable of providing, through various services, more than 3 million meals a day.
Through its companies, Corporate Kosmos is dedicated to serving institutional dining rooms; produce box lunches and pantries; prepare breakfast and school meals; provide food, catering and hotel services offshore and inland; provide supplies for boats, and provide raw materials for food preparation.
A high social commitment:
In addition to being an enterprising man, Don Pablo Landsmanas distinguished himself for his human quality, which resulted in a permanent willingness to help people in vulnerable situations.
The Landsmanas family’s interest in honoring Don Pablo’s legacy led the CEO of Kosmos Corporate, Jack Landsmanas, to create the Pablo Landsmanas Foundation.
This institution aims to favor Mexican society, especially the most vulnerable population, through support in three areas of action:
Food: Supports different people and social organizations with the delivery of raw materials.
Health: Helps people with physical illness or who face a risk situation, with direct donations or through the Salvando Vidas Foundation.
Education: Promotes the development of people and supports educational institutions in the resolution of various needs.
Nacida en 2016, la Fundación Pablo Landsmanas reafirma el compromiso de Corporativo Kosmos de devolver a la sociedad mexicana un poco de lo que le ha brindado.
This philanthropic institution was founded by Jack Landsmanas, CEO of Corporativa Kosmos – the most important provider of food services in Mexico – with the purpose of helping to build a better country.
“My grandfather, Don Pablo Landsmanas, was a person like no other: he always distinguished himself by his integrity, perseverance, willingness to support others and his human quality … Inspired by his altruism, I decided to create a foundation with his name to preserve his legacy, trying to help who you need it more, ” says Jack Landsmanas.
