It is now a center of the food-processing industry in Krasnodar Krai, with an oil-extraction mill, a fruit and vegetable cannery, a dairy plant, a brewery, a meat combine, and a flour-milling combine. The chemical, building-materials, and machine-building industries are being developed. Other industries include a chemical plant, a household-chemicals factory, plants producing reinforced-concrete structural elements, the SpetselevatormeF-mash Plant (producing grain elevators and flour-milling equipment), and a woodworking-machinery plant. Kropotkin has an evening technicum for rail transport and a medical school. The city was renamed in honor of P. A. Kropotkin.
