The Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies, Italian: Ministero delle Politiche Agricole, Alimentari e Forestali or MiPAAF, is an Italian government department.

It was formed in 1946 as the Ministero dell'Agricoltura e delle Foreste ("Ministry of Agriculture and Forests"), and following the referendum of 1993 became the Ministero per il Coordinamento delle Politiche Agricole ("Ministry for Co-ordination of Agricultural Policies"). It was reconstituted in the same year as the Ministero delle Risorse Agricole, Alimentari e Forestali ("Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Resources") and assumed the current form in 2006, after the organisational reforms of 2005.

The Ministry, based at the Palazzo dell'Agricoltura in Rome, produces and co-ordinates government policy on agriculture, forests, food and fisheries at national, European and international level.

The current Minister of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies is Teresa Bellanova.
