Zee Khana Khazana
Zee Khana Khazana (meaning Treasure of Food and named after a long-running cookery show on Zee TV) was launched in November 2010 with the same logo style that Zee Studio and Zee Café had introduced simultaneously, featuring the letter Z in a square.
Zee Khana Khazana was renamed to Living Foodz on 11 September 2015.
The words Living Foodz were dropped from the logo on 3 October 2018. However, the channel continued to refer to itself as Living Foodz.
The words Living Foodz were absent from the HD logo since the HD channel was launched in September 2017. The SD channel followed suit on 3 October 2018.
Zee announced that Living Foodz would be renamed to Zee Zest in October 2020, marking the end of the Living brand.
The official logo was revealed on 24 September 2020, and the rebrand took place on 1 October. This came a few weeks before the launch of the Marathi music channel Zee Vajwa on 17 October. The graphics package consists of colourful patterned balls bouncing around. No design credit was given.
