In 2006 Zebra Basmati was introduced in the United Kingdom and Hamsons Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hamsons Inc., was set up to import Zebra Basmati into the UK and European markets.
Hamsons Inc., also imports and sells other brands of Basmati Rice for the Foodservice industry. These brands are available in limited regions of USA and Canada,
