Then he worked for a company called Anglo French just outside Thika until he followed Ian to Australia.  
Anglo French tasked his father to grow Hawiian pineapples for Del Monte but the soil was too good in Kenya and the pineapples were too large to fit into the cans that they wanted.
On Google Maps it looks like Del Monte pineapple took over the place.
