Consider the following answer I read to the question:

Quelle est la différence entre AOC et une AOP?

Answer: Ces deux labels garantissent des normes très strictes sur le plan de l'origine, de la production et du traitement.

Why the usage of de la with production and du with traitement? Could it be interchanged?

    @Laure: the two questions are distinct. It just happens that an answer to another question contains useful information, but new, possibly better and more specifically targeted, answers to this question are welcome. It can't be closed as a duplicate unless it is really a duplicate or subsumed by another question. – Stéphane Gimenez Aug 3 '14 at 16:22

Tout simplement parce que production est féminin, on utilise naturellement de la alors que traitement est masculin, et on remplace le de le par sa contraction du.

Ils ne sont pas interchangeables car ils dépendent du genre du mot qui suit.
