Purchasing "packaging-like" products

I am dealing with a situation where the customer purchases many products that are like this: "Flora Margarine 8x1kg" It is not packaging, because it is not possible to buy just 1kg. This is quite confusing for the customer and I am trying to make it easier for them to manage. One of the problems is that they perceive that the UoM here should be kg (because they just see it there in the name). This can be handled by product_secondary_unit and stock_secondary_unit to get the amount in kgs.

What I think could help is this: when ordering 1 unit of that product somehow turn in into 8 units of virtual "Flora Margarine 1kg" I am trying to wrap my head around this with no success. I have considered these modules but none seem to be doing what I would like to:

* product_supplierinfo_qty_multiplier
* purchase_only_by_packaging
* product_pack

Any ideas on how to approach this? Thank you very much.

Best regards
