The non-zero minimal length arises in various theories of gravity, leading to the so-called generalized uncertainty principle (GUP). In this short paper we analyze the GUP effects on neutron interferometry, showing that the obtained phase shifts depend on the mass and velocity of the particle. New upper bounds on the dimensionless GUP parameter have been found that are in agreement with the literature.
