CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) - The Farley's & Sathers candy plant in Chattanooga is cutting 95 jobs as some production is shifted to other factories in the second major downsizing here by the company in the last couple of years.

Ferrara Candy Co., the Chicago-based parent of Farley's & Sathers, is moving manufacture of chocolate and maple nut goodies products from its Jersey Pike plant to facilities in Forest Park, Ill., and Bellwood, Ill., said company spokesman Bryan Darrow.

Darrow said the company is providing assistance to help the transition for those affected by the layoffs, including severance and outplacement services.
