Baron Dániel Bánffy de Losoncz (18 September 1893 – 7 April 1955) was a Hungarian politician, who served as Minister of Agriculture between 1940 and 1944. His grandfather was Baron Dezső Bánffy, who functioned as Speaker of the House of Representatives and Prime Minister.
He farmed in his possessions in Transylvania from 1917 until 1940. In August 1940, the second Vienna Award granted Northern Transylvania to Hungary.
