The President opened New KCC in Eldoret on Monday with a warning against corruption and misuse of assets at the factory.
Uhuru Kenyatta commissioned the refurbished facility that will produce powder milk and other products.
He was with Deputy President William Ruto, Cabinet Secretaries Henry Rotich (Treasury) and Willy Bett (Agriculture) and Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago.
Noting the government invested more than Sh400 million in the factory, the President asked the board and staff to guard assets and ensure nothing is misused.
He said Kiganjo, Nyahururu and other KCC factories will also be revived.
On June 4, NASA flag bearer Raila Odinga accused some powerful personalities in the Jubilee administration of planning to grab the New Kenya Co-operative Creameries assets, among them prime land.
The President said the ruling coalition needs five more years in government continue with ts development agenda, instead of empty rhetoric that does not benefit anyone.
Ruto announced that subsidised fertiliser will be sold at Sh1,200 a bag from December so farmers can produce more.
