Harry worked at the Woodville Bacon Company, which was one of New Zealandís largest bacon curing businesses and owned the well-known MOREPORK and DOUBLE DIAMOND brand names. He worked his way up and become the Head Bacon Curer. Later he started his own bacon curing business with a Mr Nicholson in Tawhiti Road, Hawera, Taranaki. The family joined him later in a new home in Campbell Road, Nolantown, Hawera. The business became Messrs T H Walker & Sons and grew to become a successful wholesaler, which exported to Australia and the United Kingdom, especially under their EGMONT brand name. Later the business was taken over by Dawn Meats.
