Two California organic and natural food producers are seeking investors and traveling to New York City’s Times Square next week to look for it.

Monterey Gourmet Foods and Overhill Farms, Inc. are presenting at venture capital firm Roth Capital Partners’ conference Sept. 6 and 7.

Monterey Gourmet Foods, which trades on the Nasdaq exchange under the symbol PSTA, manufactures fresh refrigerated food products at its facility in Salinas and at its organic food production plant in Eugene, Ore., as well as a newly acquired facility in Seattle, Wash.

Monterey’s CFO Scott Wheeler was unavailable to immediately comment. Monterey reported sales of $45.6 million for the first six months of 2006, an increase of 17 percent over the same period last year.

Overhill Farms, is listed on the American Stock Exchange under the symbol OFI, is a value-added manufacturer of prepared frozen food products, including organic and vegetarian items.

Roth raised over $8.7 billion for small and micro cap public companies and completed over 123 merger, acquisition and advisory assignments in the past 10 years, the firm said.
