Stacks milk products metres to the left (6)


I believe the answer is:


'stacks' is the definition.
(both can mean a large amount)

'milk products metres to the left' is the wordplay.
'milk products' becomes 'dairy' (I've seen this before).
'metres' becomes 'm'.
'to the left' is a reversal indicator (reading from right to left).
'dairym' back-to-front is 'MYRIAD'.

(Other definitions for myriad that I've seen before include "Large indefinite number" , "Countless - very large but indeterminate number" , "Too numerous to be counted" , "Immense number found by dim ray" , "Numberless" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
