The study area is confined to Erode district because of its high population and high purchase of packaged milk. Primary data were collected by using a well-structured and pre tested questionnaire. An exploratory factor analysis was performed to identify the underlying factors of consumer intention towards packaged milk. From the analysis, it is found that, product quality, value addition and  promotional activities like advertisement were the factors that influenced the buying intention of packaged milk.
