What is the exact name you would like in your logo?
What is your industry?
Food and Beverage
What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?
We are a big professional food distributor (not a restaurant). We are a big group of companies, and this is only one of our many companies.
What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)
Image + Text. And the logo must be flexible to replace "foodstuff" with other activities for other business we might open up in the future (like "AlHayat Computer Services" for example). For example, our current logo has a big "alHayat" and a small "foodstuff" next to it.
The new logo must be as simple as possible with minimal effects, and I need two versions: one in colors, and one in monochrome. You are free to use what shapes and colors you like, but keep the colors to a maximum of 3 or 4 colors. Colors must be solid in order to be able to print on plastic and garments. I like the red, green and blue colors. That doesn't mean I want those colors on the logo, you are free to use whatever you see right.
Do you have any other info or links you want to share?
Just to give you an idea about our company, we are a food distributor. We import food from all over the world in huge quantities, store in our huge stores, and distribute to wholesalers, retailers, hotels, restaurants and cafes, etc... We have our own brands that are exclusive to us in our market and we have full control over their market in our country.

I prefer the logo to be abstract; some symbol that would be bound to the company and recognized without the text. The text must be there for now, in order to be recognized first, then later on, we should be able to omit the text and use the logo alone. Consider Y! for Yahoo, or the Windows logo. Both were used with the full name shown, and after being famous, they were able to omit the name and use a symbol only.

I don't want the symbol to have any text; just a simple drawing or graphic. Also, i want the logo to be easily drawn by a pen.

I need all entries to show the logo in color on a white background and the monochrome logo in white on a black background. Cards, t-shirts and other illustrations are complimentary and if put on a different entry, please tell me in the description that that is a continuation of another entry to help me score your work as a bundle.

So far, I like the designs with Light Fonts more. Those fonts with slim lines that give some sense of elegance and simplicity. Please try to show me more of those fonts.

Please guys, I want to see the entries on two backgrounds, in color on white and in solid white on black background, both should be clearly shown, any extra background colors should be shown like the one with black background.

I would like to thank every one for their work. Especially those who made all the modifications I asked for. Together we perfected their designs to what we are looking for. Thank you for your time and commitment. Now, I will pick the best 4-star designs and give them 5-stars. And then our committee will meet to pick the winning logo.
