May 7, 2018 – More than 4,000 tons of high-quality newsprint is being shipped today from Corner Brook Pulp and Paper to India.

It marks the Newfoundland company’s largest ever shipment of newsprint. Although Corner Brook has been shipping newsprint to India for some time, it is the first time such a large load is being shipped directly to its destination. Previously, the product had been sent to another location before it was shipped overseas.

Gerry Byrne, Newfoundland and Labrador minister of fisheries and land resources, is attending a behind-the-scenes look today of the vessel being loaded with the newsprint shipment. The event is taking place between 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
