The Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies (Italian - Ministero delle Politiche Agricole, Alimentari e Forestali, or MiPAAF) is an Italian government ministry.

It was formed in 1946 as Ministry of Agricultural and Forestry (Italian - Ministero dell'Agricoltura e Foreste), and following the legislative referendum of 1993 became Ministry for Coordination of Agricultural Policies (Italian - Ministero per il Coordinamento delle Politiche Agricole). It was reconstituted in the same year as Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Resources (Italian - Ministero delle Risorse Agricole, Alimentari e Forestali), changed name several times, until it assumed the current in 2006, after the organisational reforms of 2005.

The ministry produces and coordinates government policy on agriculture, forests, food and fishing at a national, European and international level.

The Ministry is based in Rome, and is currently headed by minister Mario Catania.
