Cargill pledges new investment in Brazil, urges improved infrastructure

SAO PAULO, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Cargill's chief executive officer for Brazil, Luiz Pretti, said on Thursday that the company has invested $1.6 billion in the country in the last 8 years and plans new investments that would be facilitated by improvements in infrastructure.
