KRBL Ltd History
The journey of world’s most favoured Basmati brand was embarked upon by two enterprising brothers Khushi Ram & Behari Lal who founded KRBL (formerly known as Khushi Ram Behari Lal) in 1889 at Lyallpur, known now as Faisalabad in Pakistan.
Over the years, from agricultural commodities such as wheat, cotton and oil as our main business, we shifted our core focus to rice. Since the year 1947 until today, we have time and again relocated and restructured our business.
So, whether it was shifting base to Naya Bazaar, Lahori Gate, Delhi in 1947 or restructuring business to focus sharply on rice in the early 70s or in 1985 when we started exporting rice directly and capturing international markets, KRBL has always strived to evolve in its rice business.
Stewarded by three of the doyens of the Indian agri-product industry, Mr. Anil Kumar Mittal (Chairman & Managing Director) and Mr. Arun Kumar Gupta and Mr. Anoop Kumar Gupta (both Joint Managing Directors) and ably assisted by a team of qualified professionals, KRBL has managed to make its presence felt in every aspect of the entire value chain, from seed development and multiplication, contact farming, production to marketing.
The Company constantly explores ways and means to enhance offtake, widen reach and deploy technologies that bolster cost-competitiveness.
