About the author
Kerri Waters
Kerri Waters is a PhD researcher and project coordinator for Viva! Farming. Her interest in farming and food grew when she worked for Defra during her studies at the Rural Payment Agency processing subsidies for farmers. It was here that she first understood the financial and political problems the farming community faces in today’s modern food system. Driven by a passion for food, she has worked as a chef in kitchens across the UK and France and studied French Cuisine in Paris. She became vegan in 2016 after realising the environmental impacts of animal agriculture and meeting the love of her life – a cairn terrier called Rufus. Since then she has campaigned for a better world for animals and a fairer food system. She is currently conducting doctoral research into the question of what is a just transition for animal farmers into plant-based farming.
