is the use of comma appropriate in the following sentence

The UK had the highest amount of tea import, at around 80,000 tonnes.

or should I write it without the use of a comma?

The UK had the highest amount of tea import at around 80,000 tonnes.

  • Either is acceptable. It depends on if you want the tonnage to be essential or nonessential information. Sep 17, 2018 at 6:52

I think it would be better if you would use a dash:

The UK had the highest amount of tea import — at around 80,000 tonnes.

    That's not a dash (—), that's a hyphen (-). Sep 17, 2018 at 6:49
