Musselburgh and Fisherrow Co-operative Society Limited (M&F Co-op) was a retail consumer co-operative trading in Musselburgh and Dalkeith, in East Lothian, Scotland. It was founded as a co-operative in 1862, and, in 2007, joined the small number of UK co-operative retailers to demutualize.

In the years immediately prior to demutualizing, M&F Co-op ran a funeral business, a food shop and department store in Musselburgh, and also invested in commercial property, including shops and a leisure complex at Fisherrow harbour. It converted into a private company limited by shares called M & F (Scotland) Limited.
