THE Beccles and Bungay Journal is to be printed on Norfolk paper thanks to a new deal with the Palm Paper recycling company at King's Lynn.
Archant, the publisher of the Journal, the EDP, Evening News and a host of weekly titles, has signed a contract with Palm Paper, in King's Lynn.
It means Archant's annual 30,000 tonnes of newsprint will arrive at its printing presses in Thorpe St Andrew, on the edge of Norwich, from just 50 miles away, rather than Russia, North America and Scandinavia.
The paper is 100pc recycled and delivery lorries will return to King's Lynn with a full load of waste paper from Archant and other companies for recycling at Palm Paper.

“We are developing a strong relationship with another local company which we hope will prosper in the future,” he said.
“It represents a huge vote of confidence in the local economy.”
Palm Paper finished building the world's biggest newsprint machine in King's Lynn last year as part of a �400m investment.
Archant Print managing director Nick Schiller, who helped negotiate the deal, said: “There are considerable benefits to the deal as it gives us a very high quality sheet and, with a consistent supply from one source, we can optimize our production processes for it.”
