Rosie Wardle is Programme Director at the Jeremy Coller Foundation (JCF), heading up the Foundation’s strategic programmes to end factory farming.
In December 2015, JCF launched the FAIRR (Farm Animal Investment Risk & Return) Initiative, which is working with major investors globally to put factory farming on the ESG agenda. FAIRR is currently backed by investors with combined assets of over $6 trillion, and as part of her role Rosie leads FAIRR’s collaborative investor engagements with global food companies. One of FAIRR’s focus areas is the impacts of the food industry and human health, particularly the financial implications of rising antibiotic resistance.
Rosie also acts as an advisor for Jeremy Coller’s personal investments in the food technology space. Recent investments include Memphis Meats, Impossible Foods, Perfect Day and Good Catch.
Rosie holds a BA (Hons) and MA from the University of Oxford, and an MA from the Courtauld Institute.
