Last October 21, Zomato undergo rebranding and introduced their new logo. Founder & CEO Deepinder Goyal explained Zomato's rebranding:

Zomato was built for the love of food – the one thing that stirs universal emotion (probably matched only by the universality of sex, sports and music). Our fondest memories are intricately woven with those of the people we were with, and the food we loved. Our food stories are perhaps the most told stories.

Putting down why we exist, is liberating. We want people to spend more time with each other than with their phones (ironically, by means of our app on your phone). And while we are at it, we will try to ensure that every meal, for everyone, is a great experience. We raise the bar for the restaurant industry by making restaurants accountable to their customers. We guide people to places that help create unique and memorable food experiences for our users, and provide a platform for critical feedback to reach places that don't.

Meet the Heart, our new logo.

This logo transcends languages and cultures. It captures the story of millions of meals and experiences being shared with a vast global community of people. The story of “people and food”.

It signifies our connection with those who share our passion for food. People who love, and live, to eat. The ones who diligently chronicle their food experiences so that others are able to make better choices. Because people who love to eat are always the best people.

Our world has been, and will continue to be, built around conversations over great meals. History, whenever written, has always begun with a toast, followed by a feast.
