Jack Landsmanas, CEO of Mexican food services giant Kosmos Corporate, is on a mission. The successful entrepreneur and philanthropic- minded entrepreneur not only redefines best business practices, but his company and its foundation (the Pablo Landsmanas Foundation) are key actors in the development of initiatives aimed at helping economic, social and environmental stability of Mexico.

And such a mission begins with the legacy.


Who is Jack Landsmanas Stern?

Jack Landsmanas Stern (or Jack Landsmanas) is known both nationally and globally as a successful entrepreneur and entrepreneur. He is currently the CEO of Corporate Kosmos and founder of the Pablo Landsmanas Foundation (established in 2016).

The foundation began in memory of his grandfather, Don Pablo Landsmanas, who arrived in Mexico in 1959 from his home country, Lithuania. Once there, he operated the La Modelo butcher shop in Mexico City. This later became Kosmos Corporate , Mexico’s leading food service provider.

Kosmos Corporate

In the last 55 years, Corporate Kosmos has become a first-class food service provider with the intention of constantly expanding the business through innovation and quality. Currently, the corporation serves food to 3 million people across the country every day.

As CEO, Jack Landsmanas is committed to the positive change that Corporate Kosmos continues to have in the service industry. Noted for the investment it makes in its employees, the corporation serves as a business model. It encourages training and routine development for all team members, with Jack Landsmanas leading everything.

In addition, the talented CEO has developed initiatives to promote social welfare and sustainability efforts throughout Mexico. Through the slogan of his “For you, for them, for Mexico” foundation, Jack intends to ensure that all Mexican citizens receive adequate food, education and health services.

Sustainability in practice

When operating a food service corporation , Jack Landsmanas works tirelessly to ensure:

1) Human health: It is crucial that the corporation guarantees the health and well-being of those it serves.

2) Sustainability Animal and environmental health should be considered, particularly when establishing best practices for food manufacturing processes.

3) Security: Safe business practices are a priority when it comes to food, which means that all parties involved should be informed of the ever changing guidelines and mandates.

To help with this operation, Corporativa Kosmos has launched a sustainability platform that focuses on developing the best daily practices to conduct business and protect the environment. For example, the corporation has studied the use of water (and how it could be reused), as well as energy efficiency. In doing so, it has managed to promote agricultural development and conservation.

In addition, the company has changed to using biodegradable chemicals in its manufacturing process, a welcome change considering that the United States Cooperative Institute for Environmental Science Research has published research that suggests that 50% of environmental pollution comes of chemicals and other atmospheric factors.

So, by using biodegradable chemicals, Corporate Kosmos is helping to eliminate prolonged pollution and waste accumulation. Not only has this proven to be a viable business practice, but it has also helped raise awareness about growing concerns about sustainability (and the lack of measures to facilitate it).

Practice makes perfect

The work of Jack Landsmanas Stern and his employees at Corporate Kosmos is paying off. This year, the company had the privilege of being recognized as a socially responsible company. Presented by the Mexican Center for Philanthropy, the award is one of the most prestigious honors in sustainability circles.

And make no mistake: the prize was not awarded only for the practices implemented in Corporate Kosmos. It was awarded because these practices are improving the economic, social and environmental health of Mexico.

In particular, the Landsmanas family business group has been able to contribute to the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), SDG for its acronym in English. These SDGs serve as global written initiatives made by world leaders. With a concentrated effort, the hope is to eliminate poverty, increase environmental care, promote sustainable construction and promote peace, all by 2030.

With total security these are very important objectives and Corporate Kosmos is helping to achieve them. Through its best practices, the corporation leads the charge of the second SDG known as 
Zero Hunger .

Zero Hunger

The Zero Hunger title says it all: ending world hunger, providing safe food, increasing nutrition and promoting / providing sustainable agriculture.

Corporate Kosmos contributes to this in three ways:

1) Supply needed: The Pablo Landsmanas Foundation (which is associated with Corporate Kosmos) helps to provide food to areas of Mexico where it is most needed.

2) Fight against malnutrition: Malnutrition is a leading factor in the poor health of millions of Mexicans and is something that Corporativa Kosmos strives to combat. By providing safe and high quality food throughout the country, Jack Landsmanas hopes to eliminate such a problematic epidemic.

3) Good production with care: In other words, make sure that everything Corporate Kosmos produces is done with care and concern for people and the environment. The company has implemented an environmental management system in its operations and has received certification to do so.

Always matters

Given the family legacy of social change, philanthropy and quality service of Jack Landsmanas Stern, it is not surprising that the current CEO and descendant of Don Pablo Landsmanas addresses his leadership role with meticulous concern and great passion.

The Kosmos Corporate message is clear: Quality before everything else. The Landsmanas family business group has managed to manage a corporate giant that maintains a family atmosphere.

Under the leadership of Jack Landsmanas , “everyone brings their grain of sand.” Everyone has a role, everyone has a responsibility and everyone is committed to social innovation, national prosperity and global change.

Today, Corporate Kosmos represents more than 9,000 direct jobs. Deliver 800 tons of food to millions throughout Mexico , all while practicing what you preach. It is a leading corporation in best sustainability practices and is run by someone committed to the economic and social welfare of the citizens of Mexico, as well as to the health and longevity of the environment in Mexico (and the world).

All this goes back to the motto of the Pablo Landsmanas Foundation: “For you, for them, for Mexico”.

Jack Landsmanas Stern and his talented employees believe in that. Through passion, dedication, altruism and hope, they work every day to make the world a better place.
