20,000 tons of onions are exported from New Zealand to the UK each year. This 8 week trip emits 2,252 metric tons of carbon dioxide.

However, the transportation of Norfolk-grown onions around the county emits only 0.002 tons of carbon dioxide per trip. Norfolk onion growers would need to make over 1.1 million trips to emit the same amount of carbon dioxide as New Zealand grown onions do in a year.
