The Scottish Midland Co-operative Society Limited, trading as Scotmid Co-operative, is an independent retail consumers' co-operative which originated in the Scottish Midlands, particularly Edinburgh and the Lothians. It was formed in 1981 by a merger of the Dalziel Society of Motherwell with the St. Cuthbert's Co-operative Society which had been established in 1859. With over 5,000 staff, the chain now has nearly 200 supermarkets and five perfume shops in Scotland, and over 140 Semichem health and beauty shops throughout Scotland and Northern Ireland, and parts of England

Like most retail consumers' co-operatives in the UK, ScotMid is incorporated as an Industrial and Provident Society, regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
