A Dutch start-up may have found a workaround for eco-conscious consumers struggling to give up meat: pork grown in a laboratory that doesn't harm animals or damage the planet.

Meatable will this summer unveil its first pork prototype made entirely from cultured animal cells instead of from slaughtered animals, according to its CEO.

Unlike other companies from America, Europe and Israel racing to develop environmentally friendly "clean meat," Meatable's pork does not use animal serum, a fluid derived from animal blood.
