The Ferrara Candy Company is an American candy manufacturer, based in Chicago, Illinois, and owned by the Ferrero Group.
The company was formed from a 2012 merger of the Illinois-based Ferrara Pan Candy Company and Minnesota-based Farley's & Sathers Candy Company. Ferrara's product line includes the brands of Ferrara-branded pan candy and those of Farley's & Sathers. In November 2017, The Ferrero Group announced that they were going to acquire the company, which was finalized in December 2017.
In 2018, Ferrara's parent company Ferrero SpA purchased Nestlé's U.S. candy line for $2.8 billion and handed responsibility for most products to Ferrara. Former Nestle products now distributed in the U.S. by Ferrara include Butterfinger, Crunch, Baby Ruth, Raisinets, Nips, Skinny Cow, Laffy Taffy, and hard candy formerly produced by Nestlé under the Willy Wonka brand.
Ferrara announced it was moving its world headquarters to Chicago, Illinois in 2019.
